Shofar Callin': The Rosh Hashanah Song

Last October we posted a story about G-dcast, the innovative presentation of each weekly Torah parsha in the form of a four-minute animated cartoon.  Well, the G-dcast team has done it again.  This time it's a special animated cartoon for Rosh Hashanah, explaining the connection between the shofar and the account of the Binding of Isaac (The Akeda) that is read in the synagogue on the first day of the holiday.

This version is not your typical Bible story narration.  It's done in a hip-hop style by a musician from Savannah, Georgia who calls himself Prodezra Beats.

If you doubted that the Chassidic and hip-hop Jewish music worlds are coming together, just check out this short video of another Jewish hip-hop musician, Y-Love, shmoozing it up with the king of Chassidic music, Mordechai Ben-David.
