The story of Yud Tes Kislev has come to life like never before, produced by Rabbi Sholem Perl, a veteran teacher in Los Angeles.
“Rabbi Perl is truly a master storyteller, with a talent shared by few,” says Rabbi Shimmy Weinbaum, Director of Chayolei Tzivos Hashem. “His stories capture the imagination of children of all ages with theatrical drama, music and sound effects, which are both suspenseful and adventurous. We are excited to share this new production with the children of Tzivos Hashem.
“As we enter Yud Tes Kislev and wish each other Leshono Tova Belimud Hachasidus Udarchei Hachassidus Tikosev Vesichoseim, there are thousands of Lubavitcher children in schools around the world whose teachers are all searching for ways to excite their students, and this a great tool.”
The story of Yud Tes Kislev is not just a one time production, it is part of a new series Rabbi Perl hopes to produce. Currently he is in the middle of his next production for Chof Daled Teves.
“If you think this is great, just wait until you here the adventures of the Alter Rebbe’s escape from Napoleon,” says Rabbi Perl. “I believe these stories portray true Torah values, Yiras Shomayim, Emunas Tzaddikim and good Middos which are based on the teachings of the Chazal and our Rabbeim. My hope is that these stories will affect the hearts and minds of today’s youth.”
“This is a dream come true for the parents who are Shluchim living in remote cities around the world,” says Rabbi Mendy Shanowitz, director of My Shliach. “The Nachas they get watching their children sit down for 40 minutes and listen to the story of Yud Tes Kislev made this whole project worthwhile.”
To add to the excitement, Rabbi Perl prepared a quiz on the story with over 150 questions. Teachers are finding that by reviewing the questions with their students before they listen, their students are paying so much more attention to every single detail. Download the questions here.
