What would you do if you were heading home on erev Rosh Hashana and got stuck in traffic behind a driver who actually fell asleep at the wheel at 19 minutes before sunset?
Chabad has produced a funny short video about just such a situation. In this video clip, the exasperated Hasidic driver honks his horn, yells out the window, tries to push the car out of the way, uses a microphone, a cymbal, and a guitar to rouse the sleeping driver. When none of these are successful, he reaches into his waistband and comes up with a solution (and a message) that's perfect for Rosh Hashanah.
The video was created by Jewish Educational Trade School (JETS), based in Granada Hills, California. The New Creative Arts Wing aims to teach Cinematography, Photography, Music, Theater, Dance and Art to the Jewish youth who attend the school.
