Infinity Labs unveils The Otifier launching a whole new series to explore the mysteries of the Hebrew Alphabet--along with some real practical lessons.
Miri anguishes over the lifeless letters on the page--until Rabbi Infinity shows her how to plug them back in and bring them back to life.

Is Rabbi Infinity a tzadik? What is a tzadik and how does he fly? How do you become one? And what's so tzadik-like about the 18th letter of the alefbet?
