Modi Rosenfeld, the stand-up Jewish comedian known simply as Modi, has been one of our favorites ever since we started Jewish Humor Central.
A few months ago, he appeared at a Chabad event and left the audience laughing out loud at his description of airport security personnel reacting to him carrying a five-foot shofar through the airport. In the six minute video he also cites hilarious differences between Ashkenazim and Sefardim in synagogues and in social situations.
We think it's a great way to approach the High Holiday season with a touch of humor, as Modi clearly points out to his audience. We only wish that the video were larger and clearer, but it was taken with a cell phone so we have to settle for a smaller picture. But the sound is good enough to give us a few laughs.
