The Siddur Flies to Heaven

The decree of 1827 conscripted and forced very young Jewish boys from age 7 into the Czar's Army in Russia, for as long as 25 years. Fasten your seatbelts as Rabbi Sholem Perl, master storyteller, keeps you at the edge of your seat, as you experience the suspenseful moment the “Cantonist” child stood steadfast to his Yiddishkeit under tremendous pressure, and sends a siddur to heaven, as he defies the Czar's General’s orders. This story teaches us to stay proud, strong and committed to Yiddishkeit.
