With Bar Mitzvah videos on YouTube being all the rage these days, it’s no wonder an odd assortment keep popping up as young Jews look to outdo one another. Heeb magazine spotted this video by a boy named Jake, who went to such lengths as to hire a songwriter to put together this religious cri de couer.

Writes Heeb:

I know it’s hard for some of you Brooklyn hipsters and LA Jewch-bags to believe, but yes, Jews can survive more than 50 miles inland. And yes, they can make ridiculous Bar Mitzvah videos with the best of ’em. And yes, this is a great opportunity to make a ‘barn mitzvah‘ joke.

Of course, Jake is from Baltimore, which isn’t exactly “country” by U.S.-standards, but the video plays up the country-fied credentials of the soon-to-be man all the same, with tractors, four wheelers, and other “symbols” of farm-living.
