The Best Half-Jewish/Half-Asian, Queen-Inspired Bar Mitzvah Video You’ll Ever See

Remember a few weeks ago, when we declared that Bar Mitzvah videos had jumped the shark, after some pischer from Atlanta made his star-studded entry into Jewish adulthood/The rap game?  Of course you do – things like “novelty Bar Mitzvah rap videos” aren’t easily forgotten.

Well, frankly, this video blows that one out of the water. Meet Jorel, the Queen-belting, crotch-pointing, Bar Mitzvah boy who makes us wish we were half this cool when we were in middle school. Jorel, today you are a man. An awesome, awesome man. Mazal tov!

    I think the video was cute, but a Bar Mitzvah boy is not a half Jew. It may make for a funny video but I’m sure many Jews of mixed ethnicities would be offended by that. A Jew is a Jew.

    Yes, and a Taiwanese is a Taiwanese. He’s not half anything. But it’s a useful shorthand.

    The proper term is becoming a bar mitzvah not having a bar mitzvah. Although this was creative and unique… It seems that this young man and his parents missed the point. B’sha’ah tovah. In support of less having and more becoming.
