Rabbis in Charlotte and Denver have made their own Super Bowl wager, complete with righteously entertaining videos hyping their own team’s chances Sunday and dissing the other's.
They’ve set up a Fundly page. As of Monday, they had raised $2,586 – the goal is $3,600. All the money goes to children’s charities chosen by each temple – in Charlotte, the Shalom Park Freedom School – though two-thirds of the dough will go to the winning side.
On “JewTube Charlotte,” here’s Rabbi Judy Schindler of Charlotte’s Temple Beth El making her case, sermon-style, about why “God is a Panthers Fan!”
And here Denver Rabbi Joe Black answers with Temple Emanuel’s brazen video – check out the soaring musical score – about why the Broncos will crush the “Kitty Cats.”
