WHAT ARE PARENTS SAYING ABOUT THE MEID’LS?

‘The Performance is of a very high quality.  The musical compositions, actresses and costumes and scenery are of a professional level.  The content is highly educational, providing an inspired foundation for Jewish Learning.  My 3 year old daughter learns all the songs which are so pleasant and easy to memorise.  These words she learns at 3 years old she will remember for the rest of her life.
Simple yet profound words to touch the soul of the child forever.”
Ilana Rotblat
Former Ballerina for the Divertisement Ballet Company and children’s playwright.

“When my 3 year old daughter hears the MEID’LS her whole face lights up….at last the Melbourne community has a form of entertainment that is educational, easy to listen to and imparts values to our children in a creative and fun way …go the MEID’LS!”
Nicole Kornhauser
 Director of Merkos Women

‘We love the shows and the songs and kids get right in to all the movements.  Then at home they play the music over and over again.  What a fun way to prepare for a festival!!! Thank you.”

“Your beautiful CDs and children’s productions that are filled with love of Hashem, doing Mitzvot, Torah and Yiddishkeit are very inspiring and enjoyable and they instill wonderful Jewish values and morals in children.  My children look forward to each production and our CDs get played over and over again.’
Leanne Janet

‘As a parent who has undergone many years of musical training with my children, I must say how impressed I was with the highly developed music written and performed by the MEID’LS.  Unlike most simple Jewish children’s music that I’ve come across the MEID’LS music is quite sophisticated yet clearly not beyond the children.  Their music comprises many styles, rhythms, beats and harmonies which fully engage both children and adults.  VERY impressive!
Lauren Weiner

Tonight I got lost driving on the way home from the airport on a freezing raining night with kids in the back of the car.  Gid was hungry and started the trip saying, “I want to go home Mummy”  over and over and over…Your Purim CD was the only thing that would keep Gid calm and happy and eventually we found the way home. 
Again I want to thank you for many wonderful hours of singing you have gifted Gidi and I.”
Janet Goodvach

Tara has not stopped listening to your Cd, she remembers the dance moves from the show and after kinder everyday she puts on her fairy dress and does a performance.   I was hoping if you wouldn’t mind sending a couple more of the colour-in-sheets of the the MEID’LS, she is obsessed with colouring them in and keeps colouring over the sheets you gave us.”
Rochelle Parasol

“I took my 3 year old and 1 year old to see the MEID’LS show and we all had a great time.  The show is full of entertainment, energy, fun music and some wonderful messages about kindness and friendship.  It’s fantastic to see all the smiles and excitement of the young audience as they get involved.  A must see for the kids!”
Bindy Mushin

Our son loved the Chanukah concert and we have to play the CD of it to him every night.  The CD is getting worn down already!’

“Doniel knows all the songs and hand motions.  It is nice that he looks forward to the Chaggim with MEID’LS songs.  Through the MEID’LS plays he is able to identify key features of the Chagim even from the tender age of 2”
Micki Lavin-Pell

…. From our young fans…
I love the MEID’LS so much because they have such good songs.  Bagel is a bit like me, sometimes I am bossy.  Dreidl is my favourite and she bumps into people.  I want to be like the MEID’LS when I grow up.  I love you so much.  I am giving you big kisses and hugs.’
Chani Kazatsky 4 years old.

“The MEID’LS are good, I enjoy their songs.  I listen to their CD all the time and I pretend to be all of the different MEID’LS”

WHAT ARE EDUCATORS SAYING ABOUT THE MEID’LS?

“After listening to the MEID’LS CD, I bought one for each of our centres, the children became so excited every time they knew the MEID’LS was on.  The room became alive with music the children could understand and relate to.  Even when the CD wasn’t on I could hear many children singing to themselves, “We’re the MEID’LS…”
