Elon Gold, one of our favorite Jewish comedians, delivered some funny observations on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur as part of his pre-holiday routine at a comedy festival in Montreal. We'll forgive him for attributing some of the Yom Kippur prohibitions to Rosh Hashanah and laugh along with him anyway.
You may recognize Gold from some of our previous posts. We featured him in December 2009 and in June 2010 when he performed on Chabad telethons.
Gold attended the Westchester Day School in Mamaroneck, NY and the Marsha Stern Talmudical Academy (MTA)/Yeshiva University High School for Boys in Manhattan, NY. He is a practicing orthodox Jew.
A word of caution to any of our serious readers who want to keep Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur comedy-free. Take a pass on this video. To everyone else, enjoy!
