Ben Platt Wrote A Yom Kippur Song And It’s Kind Of A Bop
Are we on a pre-fast-electrolyte-binge-Gatorade-high, or is Ben Platt’s Yom Kippur jam the song of the summer?
The “Dear Evan Hansen” star and Ramah summer camp princeling joined together with rising magen-david Molly Gordon for a stirring new edition to the Yom Kippur liturgy: a brief, a capella Yom Kippur jingle.
Come for the tortured-looking Jewish heartthrobs, stay for the eye acting, we say! Platt and “Animal Kingdom” actress Gordon have created a jam we can see ourselves shuckling to. The aesthetic is that of the cover of the book “The Outsiders,” and the perfect eyebrows make us proud to be tribe members.
