In December 2008 THE MEID’LS toured the USA and performed their musical show “The MEID’LS at Chanukah”. 17 performances were held in Jewish Day Schools and communal venues. For 3 weeks THE MEID’LS braved snow, ice and freezing temperatures while travelling across the Tri-State area delivering fun, smiles and laughter to over 3,000 young children.

The tour was a grand success. THE MEID’LS work was received with great enthusiasm by administrators and children alike. All who hosted a performance requested that THE MEID’LS please return and perform again in the near future.
