Israeli child singing on local version of A Star is Born

Here's Ophir Elbaz - he looks about 5-years old - singing Elokim Natan l'Cha b'Matana (God gave you as a gift) on the Israeli equivalent of A Star is Born. This has racked up over 160,000 hits in two weeks for reasons that will soon be obvious.

Let's go to the videotape (Hat Tip: NY Nana for finding another copy after the first one was removed).

Once again, a freilichen Chanuka (Happy Chanuka) everyone, and please hit the tip box!

Such a young boy. Pronouncing HaShem's name that way is totally disrespectful. Scantilly clad bouncing woman in audience is disgusting, because she is doing this over a child. What is happening to morality, values, and these people? Plus why do you even show this? Don't you see this for what it is?

I have to agree with Neshama about the stupid bouncing woman; why was the camera on her so much?? But the song cheered me up and so did the little boy.

According to this Jewish mom, he's nine, "secular," and from Sderot. She also includes English translation of some of the lyrics. http://jewishmom.com/2011/12/20/a-secular-childs-faith-2-minute-video/

Thank you, Carl, for sharing this. For many of us it is a light in the darkness.

Thanks, Carl. He is just incredible! I am just glad that I found a working video. It was well worth it!
