Three years ago, Taglit-Birthright Israel commissioned a video production for Rosh Hashanah by William Levin, also known as The Jewish Robot. The video featured Michelle Citrin, the Rosh Hashanah girl, who is an accomplished musician and singer/songwriter in her own right.
Michelle is currently busy writing the music and lyrics for a musical adaptation of the 1993 Tom Hanks-Meg Ryan film, Sleepless in Seattle, which has a planned Broadway opening in February 2011.
The Levin-Citrin collaboration, I Gotta Love You, Rosh Hashanah, achieved more than 600,000 views on YouTube, and is just as relevant today as it was in 2007. With Rosh Hashanah beginning this Wednesday evening, we're posting it as a classic video to get you in the mood for the beginning of the holiday season. Enjoy!
