22 Little-Known Facts About Jewish Guys

I visited synagogues all over the world—from Syosset, to Beverly Hills, and back again to Jericho.

My findings are based on empirical and scientific evidence, as well as Woody Allen movies and Drake’s HYFR (Hell Ya Fuckin’ Right) video.

1. It goes without saying that all Jewish guys have at least one signed photo of an 8-year-old them with an NBA player.

3. They received at least one T. Anthony cufflink box on their Bar Mitzvah.

4. They love nothing more than a good dance party.

5. They tend to think they look good in outrageously-colored, fake Ray Bans.

6. On Halloween, it brings them an inordinate amount of joy to cross-dress. When they do it, it’s never not funny.

17. Typically, they’re not habitual smokers, but will have the occasional cigarette when they’re drunk.

18. At one point in their life, they tried growing their hair out. The result looked something like this:
