Up With Trees! Down with Jewish Rap!

There’s a Tu Bishvat video from the Jewish National Fund that seems to be circulating quickly around the Jewish web. Now, I’m pretty sure most of us agree that the aim of the video, which is to raise money to plant trees in Israel, is a noble one. However, I have to take issue with the fact that it is a rap video.

While this might have been cute in 1987, it’s more than just a little played in 2007.Any chance we can reconvene the Sanhedrin to pass halakha banning Jewish organizations from trying their hands at rap? Or at least that if they do, they have to hire 2 Live Jews to do it for them (“We’re 2 Live Jews and we’re kosher as we wanna be!”)?

Have a great Shabbos, MJLers!
