Well, that was fast. Only a few days after the Israeli version of the hit Korean song “Gangnam Style” by Psy came out (and hours after it was featured on our blog), the Jewish version is out. This clip, created by Agent K Media, Kostya (Agent K) Vasilkov & Roman Buchatsky (Rom’s Studio’s) is pretty stereotypical,… More ▸

Every year our Facebook friends, Twitter followers and fellow emailers send us Rosh Hashanah videos.
They are usually parodies of popular songs — and amateurish (or sometimes too professional). Sometimes they’re funny, sometimes they’re endearing, but most times they kind of get old after the, umm, 100th share. So we decided to ease on the pre-holiday headache and put this year’s top Rosh Hashanah videos on one ultimate page for you to share. We just want your newsfeed to be clean and tidy — it’s a new year, you know.
Here they are…

U.S. Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman became America’s sweetheart during the 2012 London Games.
Her two gold medals and one bronze — and overall amazing performance — made everyone proud. And that was especially true in the Jewish community, as Raisman is a proud Boston Jew and danced her floor routines to “Hava Nagila.”
Since she returned from London, she has been documenting all the really fun things she’s been doing and uploading photos to her very active and popular Instagram account. We collected what we think are the 21 best things she’s done.
If you feel jealous… well, you should be, but remember all the crazy routines and drills she did to get to where she is now. So you better start practicing.

Shanah Tovah! More ▸
It’s always difficult for an artist to come up with creative ideas for a music video, and it’s even harder when the last music video featured Jewish robots, but that didn’t stop Lipa Schmeltzer, the “Haredi Elvis,” or “Jewish Lady Gaga” from creating a music video that features different outfits, lots of dancing and even… More ▸
