I would have changed one thing

"Jewish" is an adjective. I would have titled it, and would have spoken it, saying "I am a Jew". "Jew" has been used as a slur so much that people say "I am Jewish" as a reflexive avoidance of "Jew".

Succint and to the point. What a brilliant video.

Loved this video. It said everything so clearly and with feeling.

Andrrew's I am Jewish

Beautifully created. Put together and recited with passion that had me crying. Andrew, may you do a follow up 40 years from now, with the same fervor, passion, and love for all those years that you continued to be a Jew. May Hashem bless you.

I've only found out I was Jewish a year ago, at 21. My mum had it secret before that: Russia is still a rather anti-semitic country, and that's where I originally come from. This video fills me with the feeling of love, and the desire to learn more of the culture that I was separated from.
