Shofar Idol
Shofar Idol

We may not have Jewish cartoons on the small screen, but there's plenty of talented Jews creating flash cartoons celebrating Jewish life and culture.

So we are going to take a look at what's there for Rosh Hashanah.

1. Earlier this year, Dan Meth gave us Who Let The Jews Out, to promote the book Schlepping Through The Alps, and for Rosh Hashanah, he's given us Shofar Idol. The parody of the reality TV show American Idol sees Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson auditioning would-be Shofar blowers. The contest is eventually won by a middle-aged Jewish man, seeing off the competition from the less conventional hopefuls. This cartoon is in aid of Birthright Israel.

2. Another gem from Ben Baruch is Shabot 6000's Tekiah. Set in shul on Rosh Hashanah, the robot Shabot complains the service is dull, when suddenly he hears the word 'tekiah' when the shofar is blown. He mistakes the word for the Mexican drink 'Tequila' and goes on a funky dance with everyone in the shul.

3 Head of the Year is yet another cartoon by Ben Baruch, this time promoting the positive life changer Gordon Weinberger (who has a new show on US TV). It takes the Tears For Fears song Head Over Heels and changes it to some Rosh Hashanah themed lyrics, complete with a yarmulke-clad cartoon fox, walking apples and a rabbi who looks like a bee blowing the shofar.
