  1. This is great. But how is it the original jazz singer? The Jazz Singer came out 12 years earlier and included two renditions of Kol Nidre as well as an appearance by Yossele Rosenblatt as himself. No Moishe Oysher, though.

  2. …which in turn was an adaptation of a stage play from 1925, starring George Jessel.

"I may attack a certain point of view which I consider false, but I will never attack a person who preaches it. I have always a high regard for the individual who is honest and moral, even when I am not in agreement with him. Such a relation is in accord with the concept of kavod habriyot, for beloved is man for he is created in the image of God." —Rav Joseph Soloveitchik
