US Jewish actor Jack Black sang the Passover tune “Chad Gadya” in a video he shared on Facebook last week for his fans to enjoy as they celebrated the holiday in lockdown due to the coronavirus.

The “Jumanji: The Next Level” star — who is also the lead singer of the rock duo Tenacious D — performed the cumulative song in English.

“Chad Gadya,” which means one baby goat, is traditionally recited at the end of the Passover Seder and is a song that slowly builds upon itself as it lists a sequence of animals, people and objects. It is typically sang faster as one gets closer to the end of the song, and Jack’s video shows drawings of the various animals and figures represented in the tune.
