  1. I'm American , Irish, Catholic….How did I end up here?
    ( I'm cool with the Jew I've know quite a few.)
    God Bless U.S. all.

  2. I think the area that american Jews excel the most in is comedy. The best comedians are always jewish. Best off all was Groucho Marx!

  3. I am Vietnamese and I TOTALLY RESPECT the Jewish people. You are a very small minority but you are OVER REPRESENTED in science, math, politics, business, show business, etc…

    Jewish people greatly inspire me.

    — With love from Vietnam.

  4. AWESOME!!!!! From a Christian, Sicilian (Greek, Portuguese, Italian, Gambia, Latino) German Jew, heritage….. No matter what God you worship, we are all praying to the same God, the one who made us and loves us all!!!

  5. From a fellow tribe member.Well done except you had a gaggle of IMHO far too many hard core famous lefty jews. I would have preferred the everyday jew that makes things hum e.g. Israeli border guards, shuk veggie growers , tailors in NYC , LA or TA, butchers bakers , candlestickmakers .

  6. you totally won me over when you intoned, "i'm the 'I'm on a boat' Jew".

    the Lonely Island is a force for good in this world!

  7. I'm not Jewish, but this video is beautiful. It was given to me by my Jewish sister of the family I chose, not the one I was born into (nothing wrong with them, though). I watch it, almost daily, for inspiration and guidance on how to live, love, consider, and respect everyone. The world would be a better place, if we all were more considerate of each other. I even try to "tolerate the people and the things that make me want to hate" (thank you, Chrissie Hynde). If we can't tolerate and forgive them, how can we ask them to tolerate us? I'm gay. I've suffered a lot of intolerance. I wish our President was not donald trump (no capitals, that's my conscientious objection), but if I want to be accepted by those who follow him (or worse), even when they rise up as kkk members and kill people in VA, setting Civil Rights back at least 50 years, I must find a way to forgive, for they know not what they do (and I'm not Christian, either – Music is my religion). "All we need is love." I've known that song for nearly 60 years. Let's make it so. This video is a giant step in the direction we'd all benefit from going. Thank you, Eitan Chitayat.

  8. I am that Jew who has a sense of pride when I wear The Star of David. I am that Jew who cries when I remember going to temple on Yom Kippur when I was 2 years old to see my Papa. I am a Jew.

  9. I don't know whether I am partly Jewish by blood, or not, but I am all good with Jewish people – the good ones, not the bad ones. And, I do not mind some of the women. Very beautiful.

  10. So many more you could've added Niels Bohr, Milton Friedman, Jacob Bronowski, Richard Feynman etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. Truly remarkable…

  11. greatest scientist- einstein
    greatest musician- bob dylan, elvis presly
    greatest chess player-bobby fisher
    greatest man- jesus christ
    greatesr psychologist- freud
    greatest revolutionary- marx

  12. Thank you Eitan. A Masterpiece! I hope Mara and I have another chance to visit Israel … and you. I dream of hiking the Angel Trail with her. I'm that Deeply In Love with a Jew too.

  13. I am proud be a Jew! I look different from the other Ashkenazi Jews since my mom's family is Norwegian. I look like my mom and her family.

  14. You forgat faniel day lewis and peebe and ross and the guys from that 70's show and fonzi river phoenix and his brother poul newman and eva green and adrian brody and ezra miler and teemotie chalamet and so many jews

  15. You forgot the the "Three time olympic champion, fighting against sexual assault , jew" Aly Raisman

  16. Loved it but are you sure you guys aren't Middle Eastern I mean that sounded a bit like white people think that Jesus was blond.

  17. And don't forget that brave young 11 year old Black, Jewish girl, speaking at the March for our Lives representing the
    "African-American girls whose stories don’t make the front page of every national newspaper. Whose stories don’t lead on the evening news, the African-American women who are victims of gun violence. Who are simply statistics instead of vibrant, beautiful girls and full of potential." Naomi Wadler

  18. I didn't watch the entire video: not sure if he was mentioned but don't forget Harvey Milk, proudly Jewish and proudly, loudly gay, who said that if he died from a bullet "may that bullet shatter every closet door"
