About Rosh Hashana: Entertainment & Resources

This was originally posted in 2011 and I decided to recirculate it because the information is still so useful!

About Rosh Hashana: Entertainment & Resources

As we enter the Jewish Holiday season of Rosh Hashana (the Jewish New Year), Yom Kippor and Sukkot, I thought it might be helpful to have some educational as well as entertaining resources at your fingertips.  Here’s a list of some of the top websites where you can read up on the significance of the Jewish Holidays, where you can find some practical guidance and guidelines for the festival days, and where you can find some entertaining You Tube videos as well.

These sites deal with basic questions like ‘what is Rosh Hashana‘ as well as more complex issues such as ‘preparing for a three day yontif’ and the videos are musical, comical and uplifting!

Of course, all of these resources are FREE!

Educational Jewish Websites

Here are some of the leading outreach and educational websites about Judaism and the upcoming Jewish Holidays.

Update: New Rosh Hashana Video & Gift Basket from Project Inspire

Here’s an update from my previous post about Rosh Hashana: Entertainment & Resources .   Project Inspire has just put out a really funny 4 minute video that you can view by clicking here.  It had me laughing and tearing up at the same time.

The video is a promotion for the Project Inspire Rosh Hashana Easy Outreach Gift Basket which is on sale for $3.99 (plus $2.50 for shipping and handling).  The gift basket is gift-wrapped with a Happy Rosh Hashana Greeting Card and includes a 1 ounce jar of honey, a honey dipper and a honey muffin.  All Kosher certified.  It was developed as a simple yet heartwarming outreach gift to give for Rosh Hashana to a less affiliated Jew.
