Globes Interviews JewTube Founder

Globes has a very interesting interview with Jeremy Kossen, founder and owner of JewTube, a Jewish version of YouTube.

(Globes Online) The mega sale of online video sharing site YouTube to Google for $1.65 billion was a source of motivation for Jeremy Kossen, a young American Jewish entrepreneur from California, who yesterday launched JewTube, the Jewish version of YouTube. Kossen, who is in Israel to attend the ROI Global Summit for Young Jewish Innovators, spoke to "Globes" about the concept behind JewTube and why it's possible to be successful without re-inventing the wheel. [...]

"I've been working on this for close to two years," he says. He got the idea to use the YouTube concept to create a forum for posting video clips with a Jewish connection with the name JewTube from "GodTube," [link:] the evangelical Christian response to YouTube. "For me it was obvious that we needed to provide a Jewish response to this. I was motivated to create something that will serve Jewish communities as well."

Be sure to check out the full interview as Kossen has some very big plans for JewTube, although he has yet to figure out how to put advertising on this beast.

The site doesn't look like it has many video's thus far, but here is one video detailing King Herod's tomb.
