huffington post, with video: Rosh Hashanah makes the 'Soul Bigger' - a spoof of Kanye West's 'Gold Digger'
Rosh Hashanah, commonly known as the Jewish New Year, begins at sunset today.
According to Judaism 101, the Jewish New Year is a time to "begin introspection, looking back at the mistakes of the past year and planning the changes to make in the new year," particularly in the 10 days between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement.
The Huffington Post shares a video parody by the National Jewish Outreach Program (NJOP), spoofing Kanye West's popular hit, "Gold Digger." According to the article, "'Soul Bigger' focuses on the Jewish New Year's themes of teshuva (repentance), tefillah (prayer) and tzeddakah (charity). NJOP hopes to encourage Jews around the world, regardless of affiliation, to make their souls bigger this Rosh Hashanah."
