We've been following comedian Modi Rosenfeld, professionally known as Modi, ever since we started blogging more than three years ago.
We love his delivery and the way he incorporates his yiddishkeit and menschlichkeit and knowledge of Hebrew, Yiddish, and Jewish tradition into his humor, whether it's parody or just plain stand-up comedy.
We found a video clip of Modi's appearance at the Aish Center's 5th Annual Gala last November at the Museum of Jewish Heritage in New York City.
In twelve minutes, Modi touches on many topics, including the perils of raising 17 children, the Concord Hotel in the Catskills, New York Mayor Bloomberg speaking in Spanish, Chassidim speaking in Yinglish, and driving a SmartCar in New York.
