this was extremely stupid.

While I found no overt anti-semitism in this video, I nevertheless find it disturbing. For example, none of the characters stated in the song to be Jews actually are, which highlights both the large stock of Jewish claims to famous characters and also the fact that little "common knowledge" about Jews and Judaism is actually true - though this last fact is not obvious from the video. Although the intentions of the Klang group might have been benign, there is something offensive about this video.

not the least bit funny,
I was hoping for some humour, but this was not funny at all, and somewhat embarrassing!

Totally Emancipated Jew
At the age of 86 I feel I am a totally emancipated Jew, quite comfortable with antisemitism. Since for the most part it is founded on lies, I've decided not to fight it but from it to derive strength in the knowledge that we as a People have survived our enemies from Pharaoh down through Hitler and those who emulate him. We are so few and so successful, no wonder they enviously hate us.
I trust their hate will consume them as G-d has caused it to destroy their predecessors. We have suffered so long and lost so many but ultimately we have the Power and the Glory of the Almigthy to sustain us.

This is hilarious! First I thought it was awful, but once I started laughing, I couldn't stop. The chance of being born a Jew is so small, that if you've won the Jewish by birth lottery, you should wear it as a badge of honor. And for Jews by choice--good choosing! Not saying life will be easy for you, but as a Jew you are part
of a people that should not exist today, as compared to other cultures such as the ancient Greek and Roman empires, which flourished in their time and then disappeared. Einstein said it best: "The pursuit of knowledge for its own sake, an almost fanatical love of justice, and the desire for personal independence—these are features of the Jewish tradition which make me thank my lucky stars that I belong to it."

that was ridiculous and funny. i love being a jew because i have rules to help guide my life, and because i know im special and different
November 17, 2009 10:40 PM
I personally love the customs, the holidays, and probably most of all, the ability to truly feel that there is G-d in my life to whom I can meaningfully connect with and I can turn to always!

STUPID. The first 15 sec were funny then it became weird.

What I like about being a Jew??? Oyich! What's not to like?
November 17, 2009 7:47 PM
lots of movie stars were and are Jewish, that is another good thing about us, did you know that Jewish holocaust survivors started hollywood?? and that movie stars are called movie stars because the company called "my little stars"was a bunch of Jewish kids and an old lady that had survived the holocaust!!!! us Jews are just amazing!

This has to be one of the most inane videos you have posted. Not only is it not funny, it is totally pathetic.

A New Low
Normally I get a kick out of the Jewlarious videos and blogs. However, in this one you have hit a new low. This is not only NOT funny it is disparaging and stereotyping and anti-Semitic. I am sorry you even felt the need to publish this.

That was such a hoot! Loved it :)
What I love about being a Jew is, well, too many things to list...but the most superficial probably is I love challah, I love how many holidays we get and I love being different (trust me, I'm literally the only Jew within hundreds of kilometres...now *that's* different!) Thanks for the funny clip!
November 17, 2009 4:22 PM
I love being a Jew. Always have! Other than Italians and Chinese our food is the best!

What's it like??
Am I just overly analytical, or did I detect way too much vehemence in the tone as well as the facial expressions of these show hosts who have no idea "what it's like?" The whole thing reminds me of the way kids (or adults for that matter) can try for all it's worth to figure out what it's like to be the opposite gender...or to be another race...or to be some given animal...What did the guy say? "I can't because I'm Not!" Nope and therefore you can make all the goofy jokes and juvenile songs you want, but you can't get in the Brotherhood and you'll never know. Funny thing, it's the curiosity and the sometimes much less covert animosity we get that indeed helps us feel what it's "LIKE" - But thank G-d we have a much higher purpose on this earth.

What I like about being a Jew is that during the holidays, I don't have to schlep a big evergreen tree into my house for Xmas likely resulting in a rash from all that tinsel. I also like the fact about how interesting it can be for Jews to marry other Jews and how fun the weddings can be...As for the Jew in this British sitcom, what exactly was written on the back of his shirt?

HAH! This is hilarious and makes no sense whatsoever! I love being a Jew because people sing songs about us playing Kazoos! Also, I was unaware that Winnie the poo was Jewish? Who knew?
