Brought to you by the always hilarious Jewish Robot, who gives lighting the Chanukah candles the usual rabbinic sardonism (yes, there is such a noun, derived from the name of a Sardinian plant that supposedly incited “convulsive laughter ending in death.”)
He produced it for MyJewishLearning.com, which has always been a favorite but unfortunately has recently suffered a tragically boring new homepage makeover. It’s like html Botox over there, seriously. First of all, the Robot’s vid should be on the front page, and what’s with no photos at all except for a stamp-sized Israeli flag? I’m no web designer, but even I know putting everything all in the same size Times New Roman font will cause immediate eye-glazing. Them folks need to hire themselves a smart young hip Jew for some “jooge-ing”.
