Move over Dead Sea Scrolls, there’s a new lost artifact that’s hit the Jewish world.
Video footage of Paul Rudd in his most critically acclaimed performance yet…as a bar/bat mitzvah DJ circa 1992.
The Forward’s Gabrielle Birkner (and her “Cousin Freya”), writes about her experience in choosing Rudd to emcee her 1992 bat mitzvah.
The soft-spoken aspiring actor whom my mom and I met on the hunt for bat mitzvah DJs — I took an immediate liking to Rudd — turned out to be the perfect choice for the event. Rudd, donning a yellow tuxedo jacket, a ruffled shirt, shorts and Doc Martens, ably and energetically led us through all of the bat mitzvah staples: Candle-lighting, Coke & Pepsi, Toasts, limbo, “Hands Up,” Challah-cutting and “YMCA.” And as the “Today” show-themed bat mitzvah party came to a close, he invited my friends onto the dance floor to sing a moving rendition of “That’s What Friends Are For.”
