Conan O'Brien Throws Himself a Bar Mitzvah Party in Israel


When American comedian and late night show host Conan O'Brien visited Israel last year, he briefly explored the possibility of conversion to Judaism so he could become a bar mitzvah. But he had only 90 minutes to spend.

At Tel Aviv's Tel Baruch Central Synagogue, Rabbi Dov Halbertal breaks it to Conan that he can’t convert to Judaism in 90 minutes — but that won't stop Conan from throwing himself a bar mitzvah party.

A somewhat serious Rabbi Halbertal takes Conan through the actual requirements for a legitimate conversion, but gladly participates in the funny but respectful reactions of the Irish red-headed comedian.

Enjoy!
