Thank you for this excellent Purim education
The music and simple story telling and graphics kept my (religious)uneducated five year old granddaughter interested and delighted throughout the whole story, it was a better version than one I read to her that totally bored her. At the end of your animated video she said"now I know".
Than you Chabad!😇

Watched it for school project. Was recommended by school Rabbi.

Yes, the story is fun and meant for kids - but kids don't like it if that is too obvious. I think that this was put together a bit childish-ly. If there was a more adult-ty version of it, without the "shopping at midnight wine sale" nonsense, I would rate it "* * * * *".
This is coming from an 11 year old, an inside view from a kid.

Thank you for reading!

From the Producer of Shazak
This is absolutely my favorite Shazak Production! I love it and can't get enough of it. Such a wonderful blend of humor and history. It is ten chapters and it follows the ten chapters of Megillas Esther.

This was our first production and it has a special mesmerizing magic to it. SPLENDIFOROUS!

BTW: My favorite part is when Esther is chosen as queen.

We, at Shazak are busy now working on a Shazak Parsha of the entire 54 parshiyos of the Torah.
