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!
Most importantly, this kid is named Jor f*ing el –
WTF does Half Jewish half Asian even mean? Israel is in Asia BTW.
Maybe he meant Half-Jewish Half-Japanese/Chinese. Who knows.
Btw I like the video.
my mother was chinese and jewish. so i get mixture. this is a crazy talented kid and great video! MAZEL!
I’m just hoping the woman who dances Gangnam Style is the rabbi. PLEASE LET IT BE SO.
It was great!! Happy Bar Mitzvah!!! You have great parents, and you’re cute, and it funny as hell. You’ll do quite well in life. Mazel Tov, family!! Peace
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.
Best video I’ve seen this year.
What can you say about this wondrous bit of wonder? A star is born.
I loved it! Can’t wait to show it to my own half-Asian, half-Jewish son!
IT IS FULL WITH JOY I LOVED IT AND IM FROM ISRAEL AND WILL PASS IT OVER TO A LOT OF CHILDEREN ALL THE BESY AND MAZAL TOV TO U AND YOUE PERENTS
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.
