You MUST Watch This!

What am I so excited about? Tomorrow, Sunday Sept. 25, is the annual Chabad telethon! I'm serious -- this is Must-See TV and incredibly entertaining. Is there really anything better than when they look at the tote board and yell, "Voight, get out here" and all the rabbis start dancing, joined by righteous gentile, actor Jon Voight, whose fundraising efforts, to quote, would be impressive even if he were Jewish. If it's not showing on TV in your area, click here to watch on the 'Net. The organization does so much good. Please check it out.

Esther, you're right about this telethon. I came across it, by accident, a few years ago and the first thing I wondered was what the hell Jon Voight was doing dancing with a bunch of Hasidim. And I definitely didn't know Chabad ran a successful drug rehab program until I saw all those people talking about how it had saved their lives. So, good for them and good for Chabad.

I think I will have to watch this. That has to be something to behold Voight and the rabbis dancing together!

Chabad is a valuable resource for people such as myself. I find myself in an alien culture that can be hostile at moments.

Oh man! Voight is too busy to be there and dance with the rabbis. He's got two jobs and is traveling too much, but he taped a message. I think this is the first year he hasn't been there since I started watching. Bummer.

But wild -- Kareem Abdul Jabbar was there and danced with the rabbis. How freakin cool is that?!? CCH Pounder and Louis Gossett Jr. said a little something too. They've also had some fun flashbacks to other years, since it's the 25th anniversary.

Started off slow but has been doing well. Looking forward to Frau Farbissina from Austin Powers, Mindy Sterling, taking over hosting duties from Dennis Prager shortly.

I missed it. I didn't know that Jon Voight was involved in any way. What is his interest?

Not sure but he's usually there every year and when the rabbis dance after the tote board, he usually joins them. He's very much the righteous gentile. :)

I watched most of it with my sis, still feeling the sleep loss :P
It was great, the kids choir was really cute.
