An interesting Middle Eastern tradition involves the use of green onions to whip each other during Passover, as it reminds us of the miracle that freed us from the lash of oppression... Guess who's coming to dinner?

More on Passover:

Every Jewish child who has ever sat through a Passover seder knows the excitement and expectation that accompanies the filling of the cup of Elijah. The annual drama at the close of the seder has the child going to the door to invite Elijah in. As a child, I remember how exciting it was to open the door and see if the "special guest" would appear. I even remember getting up early the following morning to see if the cup of Elijah (still on the table) had been touched. It was as if I expected Elijah to arrive during the night, have a drink of wine and then go on his way.

The tradition continues with the hope that one year Elijah will actually appear. The seder ends not with disappointment, but rather with a longing and yearning for the prophet to come soon, next year. The refrain of the simple but jubilant song, l'shanah ha ba'ah b' Yerushalayim ("Next Year in Jerusalem") echoes in the streets of Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and wherever our people observe the Passover.

Cool!

I don't know a lot about Jewish tradition, so the comment helped fill in the blanks. Please make more! Also it was a little choppy.


KosherJoe responds:

Thanks for the feedback. Have you seen my new episodes? I think the animation is a little cleaner for my Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year) episode.

I love it

So I thought the animation was a little stiff but the story was interesting. I did not know that slapping each other with vegetation was a tradition. The music was very creative. did you record it?


KosherJoe responds:

My friends did the music on piano and drums and I mixed and recorded it with the singing later.

im pretty sorry

but this cartoon is kinda stupid, animation isn't all that great and the the idea is bad.

try using more simple flash next time and please make sure it will be funny, otherweise, there is absolutly no point of making religious flash on NG

L'chaim, but why'd you make this so crappy?

Dude, the idea is good - educational, spiritual, and all. But the fact is, the thing is hella-choppy, the characters look freakish, it stalls and the creepy characters are left staring at you, and what is up with having the script as your intro? Better luck next time, Joe. I'm Catholic and celebrate Easter, but heck, Jesus was a Jew, so peace to you, brudder.
