For Torah Jews, YouTube is one of the hardest websites to navigate. In order to just play one Jewish song, one can be lured by many other videos as well. In response to this crisis, Hidabroot organization came out with a website “Jewish Music 24-6”. This website contains 7,000 Jewish songs and clips. The idea for this website was to make it look like YouTube, just not with the other content.
“The playlists will always be protected,” explains Dudu Cohen, Director of the Content and Internet Department at Hidabroot. “In addition, we developed a system that extracts entire channels from Youtube and feeds the songs semi-automatically, “In other words, if Yonatan Razel uploads a new song to his Youtube channel tomorrow, the song will immediately come to us for confirmation. After it is confirmed, it will be added to Razel playlists. The views will be recorded on [Razel’s] original Youtube channel; we only provide a kosher and more filtered envelope.”
Cohen continues “Fortunately, most songs and clips in the Jewish music genre are modest and clean, so the vast majority of them are, of course, accepted. Incidentally, the site also includes artists who aren’t necessarily religious, such as Shlomo Artzi, Yehoram Gaon and Kobi Aflalo, but who have an interesting amount of Jewish songs.”
