Jew too can post videos

Jewster, jdate meet your newest online buddy: JewTube.

Launched last week, it promises lots of time spent browsing video classics such as “My two grandkids enjoying their toys on Pesach,” Borat spoofs (its own section), and an animated, rhyming version of the Hannukah story.

But don’t worry. The site will have some more educational uses as well, as Ha’aretz reports:

JewTube has already attracted interest from Beth Hatefutsoth, the Museum of the Jewish Diaspora in Tel Aviv. The museum’s director, Hasia Israeli, met with Kosen and asked permission to use his site to upload footage from the 1920s and 30s taken by Jewish amateur photographers in East Europe. “Such a site would allow me to set up a virtual museum, accessible to all Jews all over the world,” she said.

I’m just thankful that my parents aren’t technologically savvy enough to upload my Bat Mitzvah video.
