“The Fierce Battle: a Chof Daled Teves Adventure,” makes the Alter Rebbe’s story, of his going on mesiras nefesh to humble Napoleon, come alive. The captivating audio is produced by Tzivos Hashem and recorded by Rabbi Sholem Perl, a veteran Los Angeles teacher.
“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. “We are excited to share this new production with the chayolim of Tzivos Hashem,” Rabbi Weinbaum continues.
The CD will be selling in stores at retail value of $14.99, but soldiers registered in Chayolei Tzivos Hashem will be able to purchase a copy for the discounted price of $10.
“I believe that these stories portray true Torah values…[and are] based on the teachings of the Chazal and our rebbeim,” says Rabbi Perl. “My hope is that these stories will affect the hearts and minds of today’s youth.”
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 Chof Daled Teves for forty-five minutes…makes this whole project worthwhile.”
To further increase the CD’s impact, Rabbi Sholom Heidingsfeld, Base Commander of Cheder Menachem LA, has prepared a quiz with over seventy questions to accompany the audio soundtrack. Teachers are finding that by using the quiz along with the CD, their students pay a lot more attention to every detail of the story.
