New York - As first reported exclusively on VIN News, an all new music video starring Shloime Daskal and Avraham Fried is being released to benefit the two Yeshiva boys that are still serving time in a Japanese prison.  The bochurim are currently having their cases appealed in Japanese Supremem Court.

The song, Tatte, was originally titled “In A Vinkele” on Dveykus 2 and was redone as “Tatte” by Yaakov Shwekey on his L’shem Shomayim album.  The video, featuring music by Eli Lishinsky and cinematography by Mauricio Arenas is produced and directed by Danny Finkelman of Sparks Productions in conjunction with Teltech Entretainment and co-sponsored by Aaron Teitelbaum Orchestra and The Meshoirerim Choir.

Please help bring the bocherim home by posting a link to thejapansong.com/donate  page to help raise the funds needed for the boys’ defense.

While they may not have fully understood the implications of smuggling drugs into Japan, don't suggest they were "completely innocent". They exercised very poor judgement by accepting a package without knowing the contents or the person to whom it was intended. Anyone who travels from or to EY has heard a hundred times over the public address system NEVER to accept packages for delivery to others unless you know the person well. Lets give them the benefit of the doubt that they did not know they were carrying narcotics that are strictly forbidden in Japan but clearly they excercised poor judgement and we need to assure others don't copy their behavior.

You sound very skeptical about their innocence... I for one (at least before this story and others) would always have trusted a frum yid if he asked me something, maybe I was being naïve but I still like to think that most of us are trustworthy.

sorry but that does make you very naive. If someone is asking you to do them a huge favor by bringing a package overseas they should have no problem letting you know exactly whats in the package..... unless its drugs

Well, Shtus, obviously the rasha had no problem letting the boys know they were carrying antiques. You don't seem to understand the point #5 is trying to make.

You absolutely were being naive. Would you NOW trust an "unkown" frum yid to watch YOUR children?

They thought they were smuggling antiquities, which is still a crime.

I think this music video is a great idea and also a unique opportunity for Klal Yisrael to finally make something together.
My heart is with the boys in Japan and I hope they get out soon.
I look forward to this video.
Kepp up the good work Shloimie

Since you brought it up, I will ask you the same thing I have heard asked many times on this subject. Do you frequently travel to Japan? I'm pretty sure that was not their destination. To date no one has explained who in their right mind would make such a detour without suspicion or compensation.

No. They weren't smuggling antiquities. They were NOT hidden in their suitcases. Actually, the antiquities were the legal facade for their trip.

Many a person will want to do a favor for a Yid and will not question or even think that another Yid would want to get him into trouble Right now the bochurim need zechim and not to be admonished so let always be "don l'chaf zechus and try to bring Mashiach already.

I think honesty in this discussion is extremely important.

1. They SHOULD have known or minimally suspected something was up. There is no such thing as a free lunch.

2. They did not divulge the details of their trip to anyone else, including their parents. That is suspicious. It does not make them guilty, but it is very suspicious.

3. Ignorance is not a defense.

4. Assuming I believe that they really were just too dumb to ask why they were going to Japan or why they never looked in the suitcases (and I do believe it is possible they are that dumb... we do have our share of dumb people too), it does not excuse what they did.

5. The important thing here is to bring them to an Israeli prison in a way that allows the Japanese to save face, that respects their laws, and ensures that these boys have access to kosher food and a proper learning environment in prison.

6. Possibly the most critical thing, for the rest of us, is the lesson we must all learn. When we travel, we are bound by the law. Being ignorant is not acceptable anywhere. A life of isolationism and lack of education is what allowed these boys to be sucked in. We have to change our ways and EDUCATE our children.

It's interesting ,that in a nation like Japan, whose drug laws are so tough, there exists (in case some of you didnt know) a quite big organization known as the Yakuza. It's the Japanese version of the Mafia.
So, how come japan cant put a stop to them?
