Not Feeling Healthy? Explore G-d's Pharmacy in this brief but fascinating video from Koshertube.com
In case you haven't heard yet, there is a new Youtube-like site that is 100% kosher. You could even let your kids on there without fear of seeing anything nasty because every video that is submitted is properly vetted before it is posted. KosherTube.com is a totally interactive site that I will enjoy visiting often (if you ask nicely, maybe I'll even post some cooking videos on there!)
Anyway, I've been greatly increasing my intake of fruits and veggies lately and I'm feeling terrific. (More about what inspired this change in another post -- coming soon...) I loved this brief video gives you a whole new perspective on the importance of fresh produce in our daily lives. Enjoy it here...then go check out Koshertube.com for more great videos.
Do we really need another Jewish You Tube? Well the folks at Kosher Tube seem to think so. It happens to be a very nice and shall we say expensive looking site so obviously they are hoping to make it big. Every video put on the site is first reviewed by moderators so you are not to find anything objectionable
www.KosherTube.com Launches New, Interactive Website That Is Safe For The Whole Family FrumWire - News Wire - 11/26/08
TORONTO, ON – NOVEMBER 25, 2008– A new website recently launched for individuals who want to enhance their understanding of Judaism on a safe, yet interactive, video site. KosherTube.com offers a classic web 2.0 social networking site, where visitors may become registered members and upload video. However, unlike other interactive sites, submitted videos are thoroughly vetted by the KosherTube staff, under the guidance of it's distinguished Rabbinic Advisory Board. This process ensures all of the content at the site remains "kosher."
Anyone, regardless of religious persuasion, is welcome to visit www.Koshertube.com. Visitors can browse the content there and register to upload kosher video. KosherTube's guidelines state that "uploaded videos should impart something useful about traditional Jewish spirituality, values, and/or observance, and they should have an appropriate level of modesty."
The website features an interactive forum, a "Kids Korner," a daily Torah Thought and over 10 other categories of Jewish videos. The site also provides detailed information about KosherTube's mission and editorial staff and Rabbinic Board.
