About Bagels

I mainly eat bagels at a Simcha, a happy community occasion like a Brit Mila or a Bar Mitzva. The goal of this site is to help you feel that happiness while you watch these videos.

I chose the name Bagels because I was looking for a metaphor that is Jewish, but without too much religious baggage. (I was about to go for Cholent.tv, but that name felt too heavy.) Bagels transcend religious labels, and are seen throughout the world as the most Jewish food of all (even though historians note that Bagels are not necessarily Jewish at all).

These video selections are “Kosher-style”. That does not mean that every video is halachically approved, or even necessarily Jewish. It just means that I think they are good for Jews to watch. Take a look around the site and let me know if you agree.
