  1. Ummm….Git Meshige. “Shtusim” is not a word. If you’re as learned as you would like us to believe you are, then you should know the word is “shtuyot”.
    And that concludes lesson “A” of Hebrew-101.

  2. 311,000 views on youtube!?!?!?!? Why??? It’s just another autotuned Jewish music video. Even the YBC or Aish Chanukah videos doesn’t have nearly as many. I think someone is using a program to rack up the views.

  3. @brooklynhocker That’s possible but I think they all try to use such programs, plus youtube detects when you use them.
    I think this video stands out in it’s quality of production, editing, singing and “good feeling” leibedikeit.

  4. Another 16,000 views in 3 days? Who’s watching this? It’s definitly a program. Yalili has OVER a million views!!! No offense, but it’s not that great of a video to be watched 1,000,000 times. Most people that like the song have the CD, so how many “other” people are still watching?
