Simply Brilliant! The Itchy Kadoozy segment is amazing!

You are masterfully teaching the relevance of the mitzvot in bite size pieces that allow even children to appreciate the value of concepts that are in truth - somewhat abstract.

I sincerely commend you on your efforts and wish you the greatest success in spreading Yiddishkeit to a generation that really needs what you have to offer!

I only hope that people will share these links with friends and family who are distant from Judaism and as a result of your segment will gain a new or renewed appreciation for our beautiful and precious Torah, and learn to Love G-d!

Great work and keep it up! Reply

Amidah I had trouble connecting this with the Amidah, but I know that the Amidah is the prayer that is said in the morning, afternoon, and evening by Observant Jews, and is said while standing. Like I said, i had trouble but it may connect because they talk about many diseases and I think that the Amidah talks about healing diseases. ; ) Reply

Gutter Puddle Bulgaria. A gutter puddle in Bulgaria.

But I did try a mud puddle in Paris AND a gutter puddle in Italy as well. My favourite, hands down, was the mud puddle in Paris. I spread some of that puddle on a fresh baked loaf of bread and it was simply magical. And it made me throw up. Several times. Reply

It could have been in better taste, a trace of uncouthness I dare say... Reply

correction sorry. When I watched again, I got it right. Not a mud puddle in Paris, a gutter puddle in italy. Even better! Reply

you got it! What an amazing video with an even more amazing visually provocative sound bite! The vivid image of loshon hora being as sickeningly harmful as drinking from a mud puddle in Paris is a gem! I laughed appreciatively the first time I heard it. Then when I watched it again later with our kids, I laughed again but was struck by its powerful chinuch for us all. Loshon hora: filth...disgust...disease... You got it! Welcome back. Reply

appreciation I just got back to school this week. Thank you for coming back with such a super video. It's funny that Jono and Gefilte Fish went to Eorope and had so much trouble. It was a funny way to teach about tzaras. Jono and Gefilte Fish didn't know the parsha but Itche Kadoozy taught them about it, and how even today people should not speak loshon hora. The puppets' movements and voices were especially good. Did you get any new equipment?
I know that younger kids like my little brothers won't understand all of the words but I think they can still like the puppets and learn to talk nicely. I really appreciate that your parsha report had a lot of Torah in it. Your video is a big kiddush HaShem. Reply

the people in the video I love itchekadoozy.
Um, you forgot to do the people in the video that had tzaraas. Now, that''s it.

Welcome back! Nice to have you back guys. Although at certain points it felt that the break had taken its toll. Very clever method of presenting a potentially vague and boring concept. Keep it up! Reply
