Topic Wiki

If your video is not embedding, see if your link starts with "http:" - if it does, change it to "https:" and it will work.

If a video isn't embedded you should assume it may be inappropriate for some people.

How do I embed a Youtube video?
Simply post the YouTube URL.
Alternately (actually, this may no longer work):
Click the "youtube" button on the second row on the furthermost left side.
You will now have the words: [youtube][/youtube] in your editor.
Now, copy and paste the youtube video id (youtube.com/watch?v=oHg5SJYRHA0&x=y) in between the middle brackets in order for it to look like this:
    [youtube]oHg5SJYRHA0[/youtube]
and leave out this part of the link: "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v="

Or you can paste the YouTube link, highlight it, and then click on the "YouTube" button. This will encase the link in the youtube tags,
Now just click "post" and you're done!


How can I search if a video has been posted here before?
This is not foolproof, but it's a good start.
Search for the youtube ID (youtube.com/watch?v=oHg5SJYRHA0)

I haven't watched this, but the description on the
website where I found it made it sound interesting:

Great ad, though portraying the menahel as a villain is something that should really be avoided.

Reminds me of something I heard about Rabbi Shmuel Kunda zt"l. His friend, Rabbi Yitzy Erps, told me that Reb Shmuel said that no matter how humorous and funny he makes voices, he always makes sure to do the rov's voice in a normal, natural-sounding voice. He stressed that it is never worth depicting the rov in a less-than-pristine manner, even at the expense of added entertainment.

I didn’t know about this place - really cool.

From 7:25 in the video

The “Jewish Autonomous Republic” in Soviet Russia

https://youtu.be/qyB1l-89KEk

The fact that they still have a newspaper with Yiddish seems so wild.

And ״סטאלין-דארף״ (“Stalin-village”) is probably the best place name I’ve heard in a minute.

Am I the only one who was more fascinated by the first time learning about the Jewish Autonomous Region in Russia?
