Rosh Hashanah begins this week at sundown Wednesday. During the holiday, Jews celebrate their new year--this week welcoming the year 5772 --and kick off 10 days of observances, concluding with Yom Kippur, the somber “Day of Atonement.”
Not quite in the Rosh Hashanah mood yet? Your friends at Aish.com are here to help. Their ‘Rosh Hashanah Rock Anthem,’ to the tune of the song by LMFAO, has gone viral. Watch the video below and not only can you listen to an adaptation of the popular dance song, you can learn some of the history of the Jewish High Holidays.
And in other Jewish dancing news, lots of people are talking about a recently-undug clip of Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) dancing with a group of rabbis at a 2010 Hanukkah lighting ceremony. Perry gets his groove on around the five minute mark.(H/T: Politico)
