Most people dip an apple in honey for Rosh Hashanah, but…

At the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, they use physics. After students built  a  Rube  Goldberg  machine to light last year’s Hanukah candles,  Technion students used a crossbow and helium balloons to shoot an apple dipped in honey at  Technion President  Professor Peretz Lavie.

Aish HaTorah‘s parodied this summer’s runaway hit, “Get Lucky” by Daft Punk and Pharrell. They call it “Get Clarity,” and pepper the song with shofar blowing and break dancing in Jerusalem’s Old City.

A capella group Six13 parodied Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ “The City Can’t Hold Us,” and served apples and honey to strangers in Times Square – including Hello Kitty.

The Schusterman Foundation came out with an original folk song with very cute animation to wish everyone a Shana Tovah.

Lyrics (from the full-length version):

Return of the Rosh!
Hope you purchased your high holiday seats
Looking for a better way to get my Judaism
‘Stead of getting on the internet and checking out the Maccabeats
Now let’s step into the synagogue, time to get this davening on
Repent before our chance to get into the book of life’s gone
Let’s search our hearts and think back, let’s reflect on the year
Seems like just yesterday we did this, now a new one is here
Trust me, I’m an R-O-S-H H-A-S-H-A-N-A-H master
Ain’t nobody getting through that shmoneh esreh faster
Sitting in a room that’s got more Jews than the cast of Madagascar
Atonement’s what I’m after
It’s a new year, now we gotta do something
That’s our message to the people, from Tel Aviv to Monsey
It’s a new year, now we gotta do something
All the Jewish people, from Tel Aviv to Monsey

Can go we back, and hear the shofar
Today is the day, we’ll start the year over
Yes it’s Rosh Hashana and we’ll say Shana Tova
Yeah we’ll say shana tova

When yomtov’s over, all that t’shuvah, I can feel my heart beat
But I’m not gonna stop ’cause I got Yom Kippur in little more than one week
ROSH! Hashanah’s on.
Praying to the Lord trying to right my wrongs
Get a little chill when I hear that “tekiah gedolah”
So now I’m rollin’ through this davening feelin’ so right
Got this melody for ma’arivand it goes like…
Praying for hours and when all that is through
I know exactly what I’m gonna dip my apple into…
HONEY — because we want a year that’s happy and sweet
On this holiday no one tried to kill us but hey who cares, let’s eat!
Conservative, orthodox, reform, or whatever, no matter what kind of Jew you are
Our voices join worldwide, and we all say Shana Tova

Sha-na-na-na-na-na Tova
My Jewish people say…
