Today, with 22 days left to go, our installment is a production called Pass the Candle, created last year by William Levin and Michelle Citrin, the team that also created Rosh Hashana Girl and 20 Things To Do With Matzah.
This video is a composite of about 50 short video clips submitted by people around the world, including some familiar and some very unusual locations.
The vocal is by singer and songwriter Michelle Citrin as she opens and closes the video by lighting a full set of candles. You'll probably have to watch a few times to pick up all of the locations and nuances. If you look carefully, you may even spot Esther Kustanowitz passing a candle from left to right in the Hollywood hills at one minute and 49 seconds into the song. But don't blink, or you'll miss it.
