1970s Jazz-Rock Song Meets the Jewish New Year – and it’s Awesome

by Leah Rosenberg

There are many creative and entertaining songs about the Jewish New Year. This will be one of your favorites! You gotta see this one.

The Jewish New Year – 5784

The Jewish band Six13 always has an entertaining video to share for the Jewish holidays. They have done a Billy Joel Passover video, a Star Wars Hanukkah video, and much, much more. Six13 knows how to capture the attention of those looking for something different and fun. And this video for the Jewish New Year is definitely different and fun! Warning: This tune will get stuck in your head. And once you learn the lyrics, you will be singing along.

Who doesn’t love some classic 1970s rock music? You might not have pictured a Rosh Hashana song to “25 or 6 to 4” by Chicago. But here it is. It’s pretty cool how Jewish bands can get so creative with their songs.

May this Rosh Hashana usher in a personal redemption for each and every person as well as the national redemption for the Jewish people and the world.

The Lyrics to “5784:”

Waiting for the shofar blast
So that I can break my fast
Thinking ’bout the year gone by
Aiming for the Book of Life
Almost done with Yom Kippur

Dipping apples in honey
So this new year will be sweet
Time to give, repent, and pray
During these high holidays
Then I’ll wish you a gut yohr (good year)

L’shana tova u’metukah
(Good and sweet new year).
