Amazingly creative! He definitely has his priorities straight and is not afraid to talk about them. He is proud of his values, like every one should be. Not only that, but it seemed the audience was also extremely inspired and impressed by what he said showing that people (even non-jews) do have some sense of what's right and are impressed when they see someone who sticks to and is proud to hold by his/her values. And yes, he must have great parents. Thanks for lifting my soul.

I watched it a few times already with the strong hope in my heart that one day my children will see their judaism the same way this young man does. It's not easy to compete with the world out there but like our sages say "what comes from the heart goes straight into the heart". So i'm gonna keep on "brain washing" my kids from the bottom of my heart and they'll surely get it right! Yoshor Coach to you Mr Metzger. And keep on being a good example to all!

He made ALL Jews proud! Thus far the most impressive and inspiring thing I've heard from a young man! To the parents: You're obviously wonderful role models and you did a great job raising this kid!

He was passionate, clear and eloquent. And he said all that with a kippah on his head to underscore his point! Yep, he makes me proud to be Jewish and to have been 'brainwashed' with Torah values!Mi Keamcha Yisroel!

Smart, to the point and eloquent - what an amazing young man!

How impressive! I hope that I can do so well with my own children that they are able to respect themselves and their values and not wilt under a critical opinion of another. This young man has a clear view of his path thanks to his parents, their are obviously so many of us that do not have such a vision for ourselves. Well done Mr. Metzger!

Proud??? There isn't a word big enough for this young man. What a kiddush Hashem!! What appreciation and gratitude for his parents for imparting the faith and values that will surely carry him thru to a happy and successful life. Kol HaKavod!!
