In honor of Hanukah, Jerusalem U came out with a new video called Own Your Sh*t. Watch it here.
Haven’t heard of Jerusalem U? They’re great. With lines like these, you’ve gotta love them.
“‘Tis the season to own your shit. That’s what this festival of Hanukah is all about, yo.”
“So time to get lit, fam. And when you do, display it in your window for all the world to see.
Jerusalem U (JU) is a non-profit organization, which makes (hilarious) videos to educate and inspire viewers about Judaism.
Another great video they made is BatMoses, a “modern day super Jewish hero who battles the forces of evil to free his people from slavery.” It’s amazing, guys. Just watch it.
JU’s mission is “to make Jewish and Israel education entertaining, inspiring and accessible to individuals, groups, and schools.” They create films and other content to make “young Jews feel proud of being Jewish and emotionally connected to Israel.”
They do this through a mixture of humor and education. Their Facebook page is an eclectic group of videos that shows their one central theme of exploring and loving Judaism is different ways.
They pull clips from Bernie Sanders to John Oliver to Steve Harvey that relate to Judaism. They have serious videos as well, like this one. It documents a pro-Israel student event that “was attacked by violent protestors” at University College London.
JU makes a point to entertain us but also portray the struggle of being Jewish today.
Whether you’re Jewish or not, their videos will make you learn and laugh. Check out Jerusalem U this Hanukah season.
Sounds like those who celebrate Hanukah and Kwanzaa have a lot in common.
