First App Curating the Best Judaism Videos on YouTube
NEW YORK, September 20, 2015 — TorahChannelsm, one of the most popular Judaism channels on YouTube, released a free iPhone and Android app today featuring the top YouTube videos about Yom Kippur, which starts Tuesday night. It is also the first app to curate the best videos on YouTube from Torah observant content providers.

Also included is a playlist of the the top videos about the upcoming festive holiday of Sukkot, which begins on sunset of September 27 and ends the night of October 4.
In addition to the holiday playlists, TorahChannel’s first app will feature its other YouTube playlists covering the full range of Jewish life, including Jewish Spirituality, Personal Growth, Holidays, Marriage/Dating, Jerusalem, History, and Jewish Law.
