"Outstanding. I can't imagine how
much research was done to synthesize the essence of the story into
the characters' monologues. Thank you for making history come
alive. The presentations were so engaging!"

Besides the programs you will see by
some of which lend themselves for adult audiences, we have other
programs that have been tailored to adults and can be accompanied by
textual sources if desired. Custom programming can be developed upon
request, to fit a particular theme. A sampling of programs for adults:
Touched by an Angel -
Your Complete Guide to Celestial Beings
This program delves into the nature of Malachim (angels) and uses principles
gleaned from thousands of years of Torah literature to explain how
the Almighty uses them in running His world. What can we learn from these
beings? Don't miss the part about Angels Who Went Bad as well as Elisha ben Avuya's colossal error in misperceiving angelic behavior!
Raiders of the Lost Tribes
This program traces the Ten Tribes through their journeys in exile.
Get ready for surprises about the Ten Tribes' negative attitude toward
Eretz Yisrael and the raging controversy about whether we'll ever see
them again. Includes an 'interview' with a member of the lost tribe of
Dan who showed up uninvited in Tunisia in the year 880 to tell a wild
story of cannibals and a magical river.
Who were Chazal? -
Understanding the Rabbis of the Talmud whose rulings and Torah
transmission inform our lives. Whence their great authority and
influence? Learn about their great spiritual and mystical
accomplishments as well the historical era in which they lived. Learn
about the miraculous debate between Rabbi Eliezer and the Chachamim
and see what lessons we extract from this powerful story. This is a
2-part series that can be condensed into one.
Slaving Away - What's
the Torah's take on slavery and the Civil War? Go back in time to the
1860's and witness the 'battle of the sermons' between rabbis in the
North and South, some pro-slavery and some against it. Then look at
the Torah and Codes of Jewish Law to see just what is actually said
about slaves and owning them. This session has some shocking
The Last Laugh - Rabbi
Akiva: his life and lessons. Rabbi Akiva didn't start learning Torah
until he was forty, and studied Aleph Bet with his young son. What
made him tick? How did he rise to become the leader of his generation?
Find out the truth about his infamous statement that he used to want
to bite a Rabbi like a donkey and break his bones. Why did he support
Bar Kochba and think he was the Messiah? Learn about his unfailing
inspiration to his people amid the persecutions that would cost him
his life. This is a 2-part series that can be condensed into one.
