Robot Passover Dilemma

This entry was posted in Holidays on by .

Most observant Jews don’t use electricity or mechanical devices on Shabbat or Jewish holidays. But what if you are a mechanical electric-operated device?

That’s the question that the Computer Science department of the College of Management, Rishon Le’Tzion made this movie to address. And the top two ways that you can tell this video is Israeli (aside from the college’s name) :

1. You have way-intelligent science people going to extravagant lengths to demonstrate something silly and kitschy.
2. The I-pop music that only 2-year-olds would ordinarily think is amusing…and yet, at any Israeli public event, provokes the wildest and most enthusiastic dancing possible.

Thanks to Aunt Michelle for sharing the video. Happy Passover, guys. And may the Force be with you.

    Whoa — you’re opening the film up to way more levels of philosophical interpretation! The nuclear holocaust. The survivor’s penchant for storing random trinkets. Meeting a new love in the New World. I feel a blog post coming on…
