It’s Chabad Telethon Season Again

Chabad of California’s yearly telethon will be broadcast on Sunday, September 12, and streamed live on the web at www.askmoses.com. This cultural phenomenon can only take place in Hollywood, where Chasidic rabbis lock arms with A-list and B-list stars, politicos and recovering drug addicts to dance and raise money. The entertainment varies from the Chazan singing Kol Nidrei to Bob Dylan, from emotional pitches to hilarious spoofs.

Highlights of past years are available on www.tolife.com; one scene that won’t be shown on the highlight reel any time soon can be seen here. (23 Meg mpg).

PS – Rest assured that Shmarya will use this as an opportunity to lambast something Chabad.
PPS – This Reform Temple director want to use the telethon as a lesson in marketing, I wonder what came of it.

  1. That rapping eitan “makin hamotzi” guy was a riot. Did the rabbi actually barge in in the middle of his rap and unceremoniously yank the mic away from him??? You can almost hear him saying “What is this mishagass?” Probably one of the funniest things I have seen in a while.

  2. If you look, the rabbi took away the Mike at the end of his rap. Etan looked like he didn’t know what to do.
    Maybe the Rabbi had some taste, as the rap was pretty crap.
    Give me Remedy anyday.
