jewish reggae

OMG! this is probably the coolest concept I have ever stumbled across. . .

But, before I continue with this post, I feel as though I may need some kind of disclaimer. . . I am not a racist. . . I know that the fact that I feel I have to say that may, in fact, only add to the evidence against me, but I feel the need to point out that though I am possibly the most offensive person I know, I have all the respect in the world for all cultures and faiths. Honest to blog, my musings about Jewish zombies and the kosher-ness of brains, and the use of random Yiddish words in my day to day life, as well as the following sentiments come from curiosity and fascination with Judaism, and not from any form of dis-respect.

Everyone who knows me, knows that I've been joking for years that I wish I was Jewish, a wish that many have found both fascinating and offensive, but never the less, I have found another thing to add to my list of reasons why I want to be Jewish, the list now looks something like this:

1) I want to be funny

2) I think yamikas are sexy

3) I want to say 'oi vey' and have people take me seriously.

4) bagels are delicious

the best reasons I could think of for being Jewish are :

1. The philosophy of "tikkun olam", the perfecting/healing of the world.
There are are at least a dozen explanations for what the original hebrew words meant, and what it has come to mean to me is:
service to others in the cause of the greater good - that being the greatest benefit to all beings.

2. The fiddler on the Roof. Really. If I were a rich man ... aladadadadadadadadadum... Hoy!
