Last year Rabbi Barr and I had so much fun making a video of the Purim Shpiel (story).
In fact, we had so much fun with it that we made four movie trailers for it. One is below to whet your palate; Purim Movie Trailer 2 is here, Purim Movie Trailer 3 is here, and Purim Movie Trailer 4 is here.
Unfortunately, we used all of our acting talent last year, and won’t be able to create something as masterful this year. So we’re asking you to create videos and send them to us. We’ll post them to our Facebook page and maybe even to Twitter and our website. Below is a video explaining what we’re looking for… but in case it flies by a little too fast, the transcript is below.
And here’s what the video says:
We wore crazy costumes
& made fun(ny) Purim videos
It is your turn
Maybe you will wear
Or maybe not
But please post a video
And send us the link
And we will post it
You can just say “Happy Purim!”
Or do something fancier
Either is fine
Send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
Purim is coming
So don’t delay
Thanks from Rabbi Baum
and Rabbi Barr
Oh, and I didn’t say this in the video, but we’ll be raffling off a set of 8 Passover Haggadahs to a lucky individual who submits a video. How’s that for incentive?
Start sending your videos now – we can’t wait to see them!
