Adorable Girl’s Bat Mitzvah Speech Gives Lessons in Fashion, Faith

Shalom. If you're Gentile, you might not know that New York Fashion Week often overlaps the Jewish High Holidays (Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, etc.) That's okay—as the rebbes say, no one's perfect. In any case, BoingBoing turned us on to this Youtube video of a cute pitseleh practicing a Bat Mitzvah that explores the connection between Hebrew heritage and fashion history. With the help of her hovering father (oh, so Jewish) the unnamed young lady notes the various fashion royalty born of the tradition—Ralph, Marc, Isaac, Donna, and Calvin—and offers stylish takes on Rabbinic wisdom. "Just as they judge in temple," she says, "they also judge in the tents," before asking, "How could a God make John Galliano?" Click on for a lesson in both religious humility and fashion. Mazel tov, bubbeleh, wherever you are.
