a brave new year

This is the description that the Technion people offer:

Geeks are boring? NO way. Nobel Laureates live in ivory towers? University presidents are inaccessible? Perhaps you should ask Technion President Prof. Peretz Lavie for some Hip Hop lessons. Join the entire Technion family and the world community of lovers of education, science and technology with some of the hottest robots from Technion – Israel Institute of Technology as they strut their stuff to a hip-hop cover of the traditional Jewish song, Shana Tova, or happy new year for the Jewish New Year 5773. Save it and share it with children and loved ones everywhere as a special new year’s greeting!

I have no idea what most of these languages even are! But it would be great if we could use technology to help really make sure we all have a good new year. I figure I couldn’t add anything to that!

Except…why isn’t Hebrew one of the languages that they offer? (The one in Hebrew letters is actually Yiddish…)

So…שנה טובה!

p.s. Please share this with your kids!
