The Heroic Struggle: a Yud Beis Tammuz Adventure,” a 105 minute recording by veteran Los Angeles teacher Rabbi Sholem Perl, makes the Frierdike Rebbe’s story come alive.
In this story you will experience the arrest by the G‑dless Communists, the harsh imprisonment in the notorious Spalerno prison in Leningrad, the interrogations in prison, his unparalleled heroism in practicing Torah and Mitzvahs, his courage, strength and Emunah in standing up against the entire evil communist regime and his transformation from a death sentence to miraculous freedom.
Rabbi Perl’s rich and vivid delivery of these historical events … truly exemplify the “Koiach maaisav higid lamoi” of a chasidishe maase,” says Rabbi Mendy Greenbaum, principal of Cheder Menachem of Los Angeles.
Rabbi Mendy Shanowitz, director of MyShliach, an organization dedicated to the well-being of Shluchim’s children, says, “This is a dream come true for parents who are shluchim in remote cities around the world. The nachas they get from watching their children sit down and listen to the story of Yud Beis Tammuz for one hundred and five minutes…makes this whole project worthwhile.”
“Rabbi Perl is truly a master storyteller…he has a talent shared by few,” says Rabbi Shimmy Weinbaum, director of the project and of Chayolei Tzivos Hashem. Indeed, the suspenseful tale captures the imagination of children of all ages—with its theatrical drama, music, and sound effects.
