5 Rosh Hashanah Videos To Get You in the High Holiday Mood

What’s the best way to celebrate Rosh Hashanah? New music! When you’re done going through our list of the check our roundup of some of the best Rosh Hashanah-inspired covers of pop songs.

1)”Apples and Honey Are Good,” Erez Cohen Music

Sung to the tune of Andy Grammer’s “Honey, I’m Good.” the Jewish version features plenty of smiling families, enjoying – you guessed it – apples and honey.

2)”Get Clarity:’s Rosh Hashanah Music Video,” AishVideo

This video definitely takes the cake for the crazy dance moves. You only wish your bar mitzvah had this many cool backup dancers.

3) “Shana Tova,” Six13

This one definitely takes the cake for the best new lyrics to Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’s “Can’t Hold Us.” The new Jewish chorus goes: “Can we go back, and hear the shofar/ Today is the day, we’ll start the year over/ Yes it’s Rosh Hashanah and we’ll say Shana Tova/ Yeah, we’ll say shana tova.”

4)”Book of Good Life,” The Maccabeats

Trust the Maccabeats to have the best harmonies – it’s so smooth, just like the honey you’re hopefully guzzling down right now.

5) “Soul Bigger (The Rosh Hashana Song),” Jewish Treats

This is definitely a throwback, for those who remember when “Gold Digger” topped the charts in 2005.

Shana Tova!
