I read comments. Lots say make the science right, others say make it longer. Not everybody has lots of fast internet or concentration of translation. Even some of us have to sneaky watch. It would be good to slow down what they say just a bit. And somebody said a different voice for each that would help. Words at the bottom might help deaf as deaf language is different around the world. Still think great. Thank you Reply

If we got the Torah on the moon, the Jewish people would still follow
all of the Commandments. Reply

Captions, please I am deaf. I watch the sign language stuff, but miss on being able to understand and enjoy your videos (and this holds for all other deaf people as well). Thanks for the sign language stuff you do. . Reply

Torah on the Moon When traveling in space, what difference would it make when you celebrated Shabbos, as long as you did it and feel the magic in your heart. I can celebrate the yahrzeit of my parents on every Shabbos, including the regular date., English and Hebrew. By the way, I made an application to travel to Mars. However, the problem of terraforming the planet may take another l00 years. Reply

The Amidah and rain, dew, wind, etc. Would we still use the part of the Amidah that changes seasonal and refers to the weather? On the moon, the rain and dew do not fall and the wind does not blow. Reply

Torah on the Moon I loved this film, Torah on the Moon. I must save this for my grandchildren. G-d gave Torah everywhere. What a deep revelation on this holiday! Reply

Could the Oral Torah be given in a vacuum? Sound does not travel on the moon. Sound can exist only where there is something (air) through which it can travel. Even if G-d spoke all the words of the Torah on the moon, no one there would here him (unless they used radios in their helmets, which poses another problem, because it was Yom Tov and radios are electric.

What if the Torah were given on the moon? To Anonymous in Camarillo, CA,
With Him all things are possible! He would make it be heard anyway, if not through auditory senses, then through everyone's heart, mind, and soul. Sounds like that classic question: Can G*d make a rock so big that even He can't lift it? All He would have to do is say to the rock, "rise!", and the rock would move. Reply

Being Jewish in space is not really a viable idea. The last sentence did not make sense.

A big part of Jewish is doing things (or not doing things) on the correct days, for example, keeping Shabbos from when it begins to when it ends.

On the International Space Station, you experience several sunrises and sunsets during each 24 hours, because you go around the world so quickly. You are somewhere that it is Friday afternoon, then somewhere that it is Shabbos, then back to somwhere that it is Friday daytime, then the sun sets again and Shabbos starts again, this repeats many times; then you are somewhere that it is Saturday night and you start Havdalah, but then you are back to somewhere that it is still Shabbos, it is all very confusing.

Because the entire Passover seder must be at night and it is night for less than an hour at a time, you would have to rush.

And the same problem, in reverse, applies to the morning service, which must be during the day, even though it is day for less than an hour at a time. Reply

Cuuute Next time, have two seperate voices for the kids. It's a little funny that the boy and girl's voice are the same. Not to mention, the boy's voice is quite feminine. Reply

Just classic! Thanks for another classic animation! It’s great to see Chabad.org broadening its scope by catering for our kids through these films. It really adds another dimension to your website. I can’t wait to show this to my children tonight. They spark fun and interesting discussions about Torah. Also, the way you’ve tied them to a set of questions, games and activities works great. Here’s a little secret… I love them to! Reply

very interesting It is the first time that Dinah appears in a video. I had curiosity of how it would be her voice. For me, the Dinah of the Torah must be very similar to the Dinah that appears here.
Thank You Very Much Reply

What if the torah was given on the moon? These videos are totally good! The kids' imagination is spinning and so is mine. I really wish that the video was a little longer though because every time it gets to the interesting part, the video ends. Other than that everything is just wonderful!!!!!!!!!!!! Reply

I cant wait to see where these Torah Tunes take Torah Next.

classic You guys rock! Punchy and tasteful humour, wild, captivating visuals, thought provoking insights with an expertly timed build up, random surprises that give a polished edge and class all the way home. You guys pass every tick in scriptwriting and story telling theory and it just works so smoothly. I love what you're doing and i give you a blessing that you should move on to hollywood and rock the whole world with what only you can. Keep 'em rolling baby, and snowball to ever greater depths and heights! Reply

Not so sure Nice video. But... the Torah does not really tell us live anywhere. The Torah wants us to live in Eretz Yisroel. Sure we can do some of the mitzvos elsewhere, but many require the zechus of living in the holy land. Reply
