Getting Los Angeles in the High Holiday Mood
Michael Brous roams the streets of LA with a shofar
Leave it to a Los Angeles synagogue to put out some High Holiday advertising with extremely high production value. This awesome video by IKAR features Michael Brous roving through neighborhoods, shops, and office buildings of Los Angeles with a shofar, getting people–and not just Jews!–ready for the new year.
The reactions are priceless. Check it out.
For those keeping score, this might just top the Jewish Federation of North America’s Rosh Hashanah from two years ago. Another video worthy of mention.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.
I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
