The 4 Best Rosh Hashanah Videos Of The Year

2013 is probably the biggest years for Rosh Hashanah videos.  A bunch have been released and spread throughout the web.  Seems like some people have caught on to how popular these videos can get.

But only a few have risen above the pack to go beyond the predictable or the usual.  I mean, how many videos of break dancing Jews do we need to see?

Here are three Rosh Hashanah videos that I believe have gone above and beyond the crowd to be truly creative, funny, and powerful.  I hope you like them as much as I did, because they’re awesome 🙂

1. Benji Lovitt Doesn’t Get Apples (Or Honey)

Benji Lovitt is a comedian and an oleh (American who moved to Israel) who has started to make waves on the web, especially with his hugely popular annual "Things I Love About Israel” posts.  It seems like his latest trip to ROI has been frutiful, literally.  His latest video is his best, and awesomely funny.  Hope you guys enjoy it as much as I did 🙂

2. The Street Shofar Rocks Israel

This is just too cool for words.  Just watch and enjoy 🙂

3. The Moshe Show Hacks The Shofar

Moshe Kravitsky of

I’ve featured Ari here before, but he deserves another mention with this awesome rap.  I love Ari because he doesn’t hold back.  He calls out “some random day in January” as the empty celebration it is while bringing out the beauty that is the depth of Rosh Hashanah.  I love Ari and I can’t wait to see more and more out of him.  Enjoy this one!

And a bonus…

Okay, this one has nothing to do with Rosh Hashanah (I mean, there’s an apple tree in it.  That counts, right?).  But it came out recently and it’s by the awesome guys behind

    What about Yisrael Campbell –

    Truly funny and thoughtful

    Ari Lesser gets my vote for #1 RH video of the year……….think I’ll forward it to all my friends instead of sending L’shana tova cards!! thanks for sharing!
