Rosh Hashana Countdown #10

Last year in the weeks leading up to Rosh Hashana (Jewish New Year) I posted this great song by The Fountainheads and explained all the symbolism in it and what it meant to me. I still love that song the best out of all the Rosh Hashana songs.

This year there are so many funky music videos for Rosh Hashana I thought I'd do a Rosh Hashana Countdown. There are 10 days to go so I'll feature a song a day for the duration.

Number 10 (although they are in no particular order) is a tribute to Israeli technology and features robotic dancing from The Technion (University) in Haifa. There are no special effects here, it is all 100% Israeli robotic genius.

Enjoy and Shana Tova (Happy New Year)!

Don't forget to come back for more tomorrow!


  1. Technology AND Dance..... my world!

    1. I always think of you when I see dance routines Jazzy. I didn't know you were also a tecno-wizz. Tomorrow may be more twee and folksy.

    Thank you so much for this great idea, 10 day countdown to Rosh Hashanah! It is a wonderful way to get my son "jazzed" up for the High Holidays! Can't way to show him robotics, awesome, when he comes home from school this afternoon! Also, we Americans think we are the geniuses of the world, so it will be nice to show my son Nobel Laureates in a way he can understand, technology and Legos and robotics (he's 10).

    1. Thanks Diane for your lovely comment. I hope your son likes it and is inspired. I'm afraid Friday's clip isn't so funky but Saturday's will be very funky. Shana Tova to you and your family.
