Here Come the Rosh Hashanah Videos - "Starting Over" by Six13


Tonight Jews all over the world will enter their preferred place of worship to start a new year and usher in a month of holidays starting with Rosh Hashanah and ending with Simchat Torah.

Whether the house of worship is Orthodox, Conservative, Reform, Reconstructionist, Secular Humanist, or other, we all look at the High Holidays as "a time for introspection, time to forge a new direction" as expressed in Starting Over, a new music video by Six 13, a six-man vocal a capella group. 

Driven by a mission to connect Jews around the globe with their heritage through music, anchored by a strong Jewish identity, and fueled by thumping beatbox, intricate arrangements, and soulful harmonies. Six 13 brings a fresh style of Jewish music to the stage, with songs ranging from hip-hop dance tracks to rock anthems. The members of the New York City-based group sound like a full band – while using nothing but their voices.

We'll be attending Rosh Hashanah services for the next two days, and we'll be back on Wednesday with our usual mix of jokes, music, nostalgia, Yiddishe nachas, unbelievable but true anecdotes from the news pages, and more.  Here's wishing a happy, healthy, joyous, prosperous and funny New Year from our family to yours! 

Enjoy the video and have a Shanah Tovah uMetukah!
