Hey, cool! Finally!

My oldest son "who doesn't believe in God and isn't Jewish" has been following Kenny and Spenny. They can be a little embarrassing for the more reserved of us, but if it works as a tool to draw my son back in, todah rabbah Avinu Tameed!

Very funny, nice "acting."

This video is good if you are born Jewish, but you were never raised Jewish. Intentions are important.

A funny way to make a VERY good and important point. What makes a person a good Jew? (btw, this is not for you to measure other people with, only yourself) If you're a growing Jew, searching for Truth and doing G-d's will by following Torah as our Rabbis understand it, then you are a good Jew. Yeshivish or non-Yeshivish, black hat or knitted kippa, "in town" or "out of town", kollel or working, Chasidish or Litvish, Sefardi or Ashkenazi... all are irrelevant at the end of the day. If each of us just internalized the Torah way of life and thought before everything they did, asking themselves "what is G-d's will in this situation? Will this Bring me (or someone else) closer to Hashem or will it distance me (or s/o else) from Him? Will this make me a better Jew or a worse one? Ultimately, 'What do You ask of me?", then the world would be so much of a better place. We wouldn't care what color shirt the next guy was wearing or what nusach he davens, what she covers her hair with or what high school or seminary she went to. If I'm doing what Hashem wants and so is the next person, why should I care if we're doing it in the exact same way? Hashem created many DIFFERENT people. We are different on purpose, it wasn't an accident. As long as we're all going in the same direction - toward Hashem and Truth, why not let each person do it in their own unique way, using the strengths and talents Hashem has given him? If we all just try to do His will, then we will all be working toward the same goal; to bring the reality of G-d into the world, bring the Redemption and fix the world. In the words of my high school teacher we'd be able to "disagree and still be friends",live differently but still work together to achieve a common goal. Klal Yisrael! PLEASE! stop speaking against each other! stop putting down other communities!

This was so cute and funny

I found this short film to be a cute and funny look at a serious discussion. I enjoyed the humor, stories, acting and music. I like the ladder story but I might add aren't we all on the same ladder, no matter the rung?
