For the past 7 years Leibel Cohen (Writer, Director, Producer at Reel Jewish Entertainment) has been enhancing our lives with wholesome Jewish entertainment that I think is meant for the kids but we sure do get a kick out of it as well!
Last night we enjoyed watching “Agent Emes and the Happy Chanukah” for the 2nd or 3rd – or maybe 4th – time since we bought it a few years ago. Here’s a link to my favorite clip – I had Yisrael advance the DVD to this scene right after we lit the first Chanukiah because I love the way they sing “Al Hanisim”.
The movie isn’t a music video, I just like that part 🙂 It’s an exciting adventure of good vs. evil and faith in Hashem. I highly recommend it for children over 5 as little ones might find it frightening. Your family could be enjoying it tonight – it’s available at most Judaica stores and online here for rental or purchase.
Motzei Shabbat is Family Movie Night in our home and we’ll be watching the latest Agent Emes video this week – but don’t tell Yisrael because he doesn’t know I ordered it, it’s a surprise! – Agent Emes In Shushan Shpittsburgh. I’ll report back on that one soon.
I just learned that if you order the latest video you can buy the Chanukah video for half price! Why do I always miss out on these sales? I would have bought the Chanukah video too and given it as a gift.
