VH1 presents “Rush” Hashanah


In this article from The Forward, we learn about cable network VH1 Classic’s plans to kick off the Jewish New Year on Monday evening with “Rush Hashanah,” a 24 hour tribute to the Canadian rock band Rush. The band’s Jewish lead singer and bassist, Geddy Lee, was born Gary Lee Weinrib and is the son of Holocaust survivors from Poland.
No word yet if the network will be providing apples and honey and candied carrots throughout the New Year marathon.  Also, there’s no word on whether watching the full marathon exempts one from attending services. Here’s an exerpt from the VH1 Press Release:
“Rush Hashanah” – premieres Monday, September 29, beginning at 7pM* 
From sunset to sunrise on Monday, September 29 rock band Rush will celebrate the Jewish New Year, during “Rush Hashanah” on VH1 Classic. The 24-hour tribute to Rush will include two of the band’s concerts including “Rush in Rio” and “R30” as well as past and present videos from band.
