David Sirull, a rabbi at the Adas Yeshurun Synagogue in Augusta, Georgia made a music video about Rosh Hashanah that has gone viral on YouTube.  It’s been viewed over 50,000 times in at least 60 countries, not including however many people saw it broadcast on Israeli television, according to the Augusta Chronicle. Rabbi Sirull has also produced other soundtracks of Jewish music.

“I was hoping that this video would impart the message of Rosh Hashanah, which is to commit that we will try to improve ourselves in the coming year,” Rabbi Sirull explained.

"Why doesn't anyone ever send out Jewish New Year cards anymore?! Well, I don't either. Figured it was time to come up with another way of wishing my loved ones a Shana Tovah (Happy Jewish New Year) so here's my video greeting - because it's Rosh Hashanah!"
