Exuberant dancing is not a new trend in Judaism, but this Aish video in honor of Rosh Hashanah mashes pop culture and ancient Judaism in a fun, fresh way. Here is their Jewish version of LMFAO’s Party Rock Anthem, Rosh Hashanah Rock Anthem. Lyrics are below.

Enjoy, and Shana Tova from TRIBE magazine!!

Song Lyrics:

Synagogue, Rabbi’s talk, going on for a while, can you check the clock, huh
Cantor’s opera, lost my spot, do you know the place, choir in the slot
Wine we drink, with family now, good deeds you do, good for your soul
Fish head, ram’s horn, shofar blow, give some money, appeal for dough

Yo, I’m returnin’ to the fold can you explain mo’
Got this desire to know Torah scroll, say hello
Our prayers rock, yeah, we’re the Jews and we question
Got the pride, just cant stop, our lives are changin’
Rosh Hashanah’s in the house tonight

All the world is passing through the light
Let’s all get written in the book of Life
Shana Tova—It’s High Holiday time

Taking stock is what we do tonight
Shana Tova—it’s High Holiday time
Let’s all get written in the book of Life
Blow the shofar and—Shuckle!

Three times a day I’m shucklin’
shucklin’, shucklin’

Shofar blast, all across the world we will do this task
Apples and honey, feelin’ glad—now stop, never get mad

Fill the Kiddush cup, my friends around
Books are opened up, the challah’s round
All our history, we see it now
Now please hear our plea, we’re prayin’ now

Stand up, sit down, pass the prayer books around
Stand up, sit down, pass the prayer books around
Stand up, sit down, pass the prayer books around
Pass the prayer books around, pass the prayer books around

Rosh Hashanah’s in the house tonight
All the world is passing through the light
Let’s all get written in the book of Life
Shana Tova—it’s High Holiday time

Taking stock is what we do tonight
Shana Tova—it’s High Holiday time
Let’s all get written in the book of Life
Blow the shofar and—Shuckle!

Everyday I’m shucklin’
