High Holidays With Rush

How will you be celebrating your Rosh Hashanah?

I’m going to be heading up to Canada to celebrate with my family, eating a lot of good food and going to a lot of synagogue. Sounds like a normal day to me. But there are other ways to celebrate the day…especially if you aren’t particularly observant (or don’t even celebrate the holiday).

This year, VH1 will be celebrating the Jewish new year, with Rush Hashanah, a day of programming exclusively dedicated to the Canadian rock classic rock band, Rush.

From Blabbermouth.net:

When sundown hits, RUSH comes out to play this Rosh Hashanah. VH1 Classic celebrates the Jewish New Year with “Rush Hashanah” starting at sundown on Wednesday, September 8 at 7 p.m. for 24 hours straight. Tune in to the award-winning VH1 rock doc “Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage” for an up-close-and-personal look at the Canadian musicians and jam to their “Rush In Rio” concert. Take an in-depth look at classic albums “2112” and “Moving Pictures” premiering at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT and get even more RUSH when “That Metal Show” hosts Eddie, Don and Jim sit down with Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson.

That is a good amount of Rush. But I say they skip that all together and just put this scene from I Love You, Man on repeat. Jason Segal’s facial expressions will never get old.
