Rosh Hashana Music Video Countdown: Call Your Zeyde


The pop song hit "Call Me Maybe" has caught fire with the parody community. Just a few days ago we posted a French version. Today we're sharing another upbeat version with original lyrics by Jason Mesches and sung by the clergy and staff of Temple Judea, a Reform congregation in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles that produced the video to wish everyone a sweet, happy, and healthy New Year.

We think the lyrics are funny and that the song contains a nice underlying message: Don't forget to call your grandparents and other loved ones before heading off to your shul, congregation, or temple on Rosh Hashana.
