A YouTube Investigation:
|James Bondstein (Agent 00-Zion) - Assigned to the Crime|
By day, he's Jacob Wedgle - a mild-mannered student at the Denver Academy of Torah. Jacob attends class, completes his homework (when he's not being interviewed on Radio Chavura!), and plays basketball with his friends at recess.
By night, he's James Bondstein, a suave, British-accented, Manischewitz-drinking (shaken, not stirred) secret agent. And James has got a very important mystery to solve: all of the Chumashim - printed Torah books - have disappeared from two Denver synagogues - BMH-BJ Congregation and the DAT Minyan!
In their place is a copy of Staff, a Jewish thriller novel by local author (and Jacob's uncle) Jeff Wedgle. Strange.
Even stranger, Mr. Wedgle claims to know nothing about the switch. Is he telling the truth? Can James identify the true culprit? Will he be able to save the Shabbos davening?
This week on Radio Chavura, we speak with Jacob, his father Howard, uncle Jeff, and family friend Larry Buter about the ingenious YouTube video that they created in celebration of Jacob's recent Bar Mitzvah.
