T-minus eight days until Rosh Hashanah. In that time, I have to pack up all my things, get them in a moving truck, unpack my things, set up my new apartment and sleep. Then, I’ll still have about seven days until Rosh Hashanah. What ever will I do with my time once I’m done moving?
I’ll probably go for a walk or something. Maybe watch some TV, call some old friends. Go home for the holidays. You know, the norm.
But I’ll also find some time to watch some of MJL’s best viral videos.
First, we have an episode from The Adventures of Todd & God. I remember the first time I ever heard of this series. I didn’t even work for MJL. I was sitting in my Jewish Studies class in college and my professor was going on and on about how great this video was. He literally assigned homework to a bunch of 20 somethings students to watch this video on YouTube. I aced that class, if you were wondering.
Next, we have a video from our ongoing comedy series. Jon Friedman, a writer and blogger at Late Night With Jimmy Fallon sat down to tell us the story of his Rosh Hashanah experiences when he was 17 years old. I won’t give it away but let’s just say that Friedman is a more common last name than he thought it was.
Pronounced: roshe hah-SHAH-nah, also roshe ha-shah-NAH, Origin: Hebrew, the Jewish new year.
