It's a great pleasure to spotlight a very close personal friend of mine, Srui Broocker (http://srulibroocker.squarespace.com/). Sruli is someone who I feel really lives with and embodies what it means to develop and utilize his personal talents and skills to bring goodness into the world; to make the world a better and more complete place. Sruli is a very talented animator, producer, musician, film maker, manager, story teller, not to mention a wonderful husband and father of 3. I believe it's important to mention, as I know that he would, that Sruli is a Chassid; a disciple and emissary of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson (OBM) and a dedicated lifelong student of the Chabad school of Chassidic Philosophy and of the Torah in general. As Chassidic thought teaches that we must develop and utilize all of our G-d given abilities and talents to bring goodness into and reveal G-dliness in the world, I feel that this at the heart of all of Srulis endeavors. Sruli is part of the Shmideo team at http://www.Shmideo.com who were coined by the Huffington Post as "The Jewish Monty Python." Here is an animation done by Sruli to the voice of Rabbi Shais Taub. I am very fortunate to have played music and jammed with Sruli for many years now and we recently formed a band together called Chillent, we can be found at http://www.Chillentband.com. Sruli is a talented harmonica player and improviser and I'm grateful to get to call him one of my true musical brethren and for the opportunity to play in this group together with him. Sruli brings his positive, passionate, and soulful disposition to the music. Sruli is now managing blues guitar master Jimmy D. Lane and has launched a campaign with Jimmy to crowd source a new album Sruli always has something he's thinking about and or working on and I admire him for going after his ideas and goals for the sake of doing good, for being willing to go out there and pursue meaningful projects and take risks, and try new things always for good causes and no matter how successful each project may appear to be or not be. Grateful and delighted to spotlight my dear friend Sruli Broocker.
Here's another example of Sruli's animation work, again with audio from Rabbi Shais Taub as part of Shmideo's "Shais Time" segment
