Now, this is kinda what I'm talking about.

Watch "Yaakov Shwekey - Lo Yaavod | יעקב שוואקי - לא יעבוד" on YouTube

Yaakov Shwekey makes a good point with his latest song. There is even a brief instance where Conservative Judaism makes an appearance. I would have liked to see more non-religious Jews in there, but what can you do?

This message needs to be brought on in a much greater scale, but for now, when the premier voice in Orthodox Jewish music can put something like this out, it's a step in the right direction.

Side note: This may be the first main-stream Jewish music video with a legitimate, non-humorous point to make. And I love the introduction of a symbol that will now be identifiable with the song (kinda like Bon Jovi's crooked smile that is synonymous with "Have a Nice Day").
