Oorah: My Review of the Marvelous Middos Machine Video

As opposed to the music CD, every year the video element is great. Last year they did a puppet show for kids based on the When Zayde Was Young Shmuel Kunda CD. While I do like certain Kunda stories, nothing beats Abie Rotenberg. Abie is just so brilliant. The Marvelous Middos Machine has to be one of the best children’s Torah cds that was ever created.

It’s got a great storyline, it’s creative, it engages the children and presents them with a fun way to learn about Middos. It’s precisely the type of chinuch we need today. This project was 20 years ahead of its time. Look how the story uses satellites and TV screens and sci-fi to educate our children about Middos.

I watched this video with my children on Friday and they loved it. A great side benefit was that I loved it too. Along with many other people, Abie and Moshe Yess always sound so great together. The funnest Abie Rotenberg Journeys songs were always the ones with Moshe Yess.

The video is actually well put together and the puppet that sings the Middos songs is clearly made to look like Abie. I wish we had more videos like this today, and I wish Abie would produce another series like this.

You can watch the full thing below it runs about 35 minutes. Just have to skip through the 30 second ad at the beginning for Oorah.
