DVD The Gift: The Wonders of Giving and Receiving; What Being Jewish is all About. Produced and Directed by David Lenik.
On PBS in over 40 cities, this delightful and entertaining show tell the story of Max and Mindy, two feisty young siblings, who are making a video about the precious gift they received from their parents and grandparents. Their mission is to share the gift?s secrets with Jewish kids everywhere.
Produced and directed by David Lenik (PBS ?Word Wizards?, Empire State Building?s ?The New York Skyride?, Torah Umesorah?s documentary ?Shanghai Miracle?) ?The Gift? combines animation, live action and green screen technology to illuminate the Jewish values of kindness, charity and community responsibility.
Featuring wacky puppets by Marc Weiner (Saturday Night Live, Nickelodeon?s Weinerville), a charming original score by Yehuda Kaplan (R. Berel Wein?s ?Rashi?, ?Judy Collins Sings Bob Dylan?) and perceptive writing by Yehuda Wurtzel (?Lights? ABC, Disney Channel). The result is an inspiring modern day classic for the young at heart.
?The Gift is a memorable half hour that parents and pre-schoolers alike will feel great about both giving and receiving.?
Steven Lipman, The Jewish Week.
