Rosh Hashana Countdown: "Because It's Rosh Hashanah"


Only five days until we put the apples and honey on the dining room table. Only five days until we begin the introspective ten day period from Rosh Hashana through Yom Kippur.

With the sending of New Year cards in a state of decline, Rabbi David Sirull, spritual leader of Adas Yeshurun, a Conservative synagogue in Augusta, Georgia, has found a new way to wish loved ones a Happy New Year. Rabbi Srull just picked up his guitar and made a Rosh Hashanah music video.

As Rabbi Sirull says, "Because it's Rosh Hashana, that means that I'm gonna try to be the best that I can be."

We think his video is among the best entries in this year's crop of new video greetiings.

Enjoy!
