    Why were critics so hard on him? He wasn’t horrible. Not an Oscar performance but so what..

  8. Connie Brown

    I'm not Jewish, and I don't pretend to know if this is in any way authentic. But this is beautiful. If you have parents and choose a different path.. This seems to hit home.

  9. Mike Bouck

    I'm not Jewish (nor was Sir Laurence) but this scene still makes me cry like a baby...A father's love/acceptance is universal.

  10. Milton Monnin

    Lucie Arnaz was really hot in this , Neils Great . wish he would made a few more films

  18. Detlef Schmidt

    The Kol Nidre is disgusting.

  19. rosa elodia neira aguayo

  29. Moses Cordovero

    i dont like the way he is so disrespectful to his father, and how he forces his father to go against Judaism

  30. Arha PremSingh Arha

    Non violence..and. trade. the pole star of Jain's never founded a state control 70percent of trade and capital philanthropy.their.forte in.india

  31. Arha PremSingh Arha

    Jainism has much in common with.judaism they have aritual of eight days praying fasting and on.5day. Of new moon of month bhadri pad. they offer apologies.and seek forgiveness not just from humans.but from.all creatures

  32. Jennifer Rivera

    It is a shame that Jess and Rivka, could not mend their differences. This should have been part, of this film.

  33. missy2009

    Einfach wunderschön... so fühlt sich Versöhnung an..

  34. Vickie Oglesby

    Im glad he didnt sing " Mammy.." that woulda went over like lead rocks. Still..i like neil diamond. Didnt understand al jolson and his times at all.

  35. Bruno56

    Being a father, I have no kids despite I am 65 years old now, is never easy. It is universal, not just among Jews.

  36. Vickie Oglesby

    Thank you..Neil diamond

  37. Vickie Oglesby

    Neil diamond..awesome. Im so glad he didnt put on blackface.

    Leigh Silver

  48. Wagner PD

    Damn the Muslims & all haters of GOD & Israel !!

  49. Kevin Hutcheson

    Kol Nidrei "all vows" on of the most moving and deeply felt parts of the Yom Kippur service.

  51. Alex James

    I cried with my grandfather during this scene 38 years ago.. I miss him

  52. SuperHadassa1

    SO PROUD to be a Jew!!!!!!

    Sarah Aloof

    SuperHadassa1 , you mean you are proud to be jewish, to say a Jew sounds so cruel

    Sister Spooky

    +Sarah Aloof : No... just to you. Why nitpick on someone proud of who they are? Seriously, you need a reality check if you are ashamed of the word Jew. Where do you think the term Jew-ish came from?? Get over yourself.

    jessiki botiki

    Me too.. this song is just gorgeous!

  53. David Mackie

    Adonai eloheinu adonai ehad

  60. jakesprake

    weird shit

  61. view87

    Not as good as Al Jolson's version.

  62. Margaret Rameshwar

    I have looked at this so many times and do enjoy it and every time I see it new emotions are felt it is a very heart wrenching and moving song and really makes u feel that all of us at some time makes mistakes but then we can be forgiven.a very true and beautiful moment for father and son.thank u Neil what ever yo do is meaning ful and yes does bring tears to new eyes,love u ur the best singer the world has ever known love u always

  63. Margaret Rameshwar

    I just looked at this for about a hundred times and it brought me to tears but Neil is a profound singer and I just love his singing he is great acting the part Tks for showing this.

  64. sellbullion

    the de indarna was pretty good

  65. Donna Schnaath

    I love this movie n have it. I don't know anything about what they're doing there at that ceremony, but it's a beautiful piece of music. Well acted movie to boot.

  66. Kalan Red stone

    al jolson had the right accent.

  67. Diana Sarasai Rose


  68. Mid-day_ Light

    the father son dynamic in al jolson's jazz singer was authentic and Jewish..

    this version this snippet's upside down darwinian in that the son schools the father totally against tradition rendering this story total useless garbage.

    Stuart Schnell

    Mid-day_ Light it's just a movie.

  69. Moses Cordovero

    neil diamond is totally clueless as to why it is just so wrong for a Jewish man to marry a gentile woman. but typical of Hollywood, it makes the one with the correct traditional Jewish values, namely his father, look like the bad one


    Not clueless, and it's his character, not him. It's no sin to marry someone you love, as he said. And I am speaking as a Jew, whose nationality is important to her. With all due respect -- and I do have it -- I find human nature to be fickle and primitive, when one declares a son or daughter dead in the name of a religious belief.

    Moses Cordovero

    marrying an islamoNazi is a horrible idea, especially if it is the husband who is the islamoNazi. any Jewish woman who would marry an islamoNazi, clearly has a death wish

    Kira Spellman

    Can you explain the reason it is, as you say, "just so wrong" ?? I ask respectfully....

    Brian Krivit

    I married a nonjew and she loved every minute of learning about it. It made us closer.

    Harold Brown

    I am not married. I am dating a woman who converted to Judaism many years ago after a life time of feeling Jewish. Judaism is beautiful. It is a way of life for some of us. It is a part of life for some of us. It is not for everyone. But many find their own path.

    Mr. Cordovero, There is one Judge.

    Strive for righteousness in all that you do. Build bridges with an open heart and open mind. I try and I fail. But, I keep trying knowing I will never accomplish the ultimate goal, but I will have brought as much love and light into the world that I could have . . . I hope. Shana Tova (a month late).

  70. Dov BarLeib

    I like Al Jolson's version from 1927. So much pain and emotion in the first talking picture of all time.

    Cor lumey !
    It's Neil Diamond in the rough !!!

  74. Armando Gonzalez

    Mike, perdona pero la religion es la persona y talvez eso que dices lo seras tu Shalom

  75. Mike T

    Its a nice song and a good film but religion is bullshit.


    Mike T perhaps, but people need to believe in something higher themselves. It is beyond our comprehension that good things and especially bad things, could just be because of chance. That all that happen is because of nothing more than "just because".

    Sarah Aloof

    Mike T, you are the one who is bull shit

    +aida liberman no conocía esta película, me he emocionado mucho. Por favor, podrías recomendarme más películas sobre judíos o para judíos donde se puedan ver escenas así ( un shabbat, Kippur, Pesaj...) Gracias y que Hashem te bendiga.

  90. windstorm1000

    that man has a fantastic voice--so deep, rich, intimate--sort of the rock and roll version of Johnny Cash--

    Janine Lea

    +windstorm1000 He does have a great voice. No range, but the songs he sings are perfect for HIM. I've always liked his music.
    Sweet Caroline and America have always been my Favorites.

  91. Stu Mulne

    I don't know whether this was explained further on in the comments or not, but traditionally the Kol Nidre prayer is repeated several times, depending on the Congregation, sect, etc.  Nothing too wrong with him popping up to start it again - he wasn't just jumping in and doing it over for his dad's benefit.  A bit unusual, perhaps.  In my Congregation some of the men used to stand there with a Torah (the Ark was emptied) for the duration.  Those things aren't light....

    משה רנן

    According to Jewish tradition the Kol Nidrey prayer is repeated thrice.

    Bwab Gaming 702

    Aron Kodesh emptied out? Traditionally, 2 sifrei Torah’s are held on each side of the shaliach Tzibur who says three verses in a quiet voice. When all verses are said, he repeats them moderately louder, and a final repeat in an even louder voice. Then he quiets down again and recites kol nidre 3 times, progressively louder. There’s something from Slichot at the end, but I don’t remember it.

    This tune itself that is being sung is way different from the way I hear it at my shul. It’s a long and complicated story - the differences

    Tracy Butler

    Stu Mulne .


    Stu Mulne: Ashkenaz Schuls do not have Kol Nidre, it is Sephardim services more as far as I know, I never heard it in Orthodox Ashkenaz temples.


    doctorwho0077 what kind of shuls have you been to? All traditional Jews use Kol Nidre. The melody heard in this video is only used by Ashkenazim. The Sephardic and Mizrahic nusachs have different melodies and slightly different texts.

    This scene demonstrates the heart wrenching consequences and events of Jewish assimilation.

    Please, If you are Jewish and find this music moving, go to a Jewish Orthodox synagogue this Yom kippur. 

    Ian Levy

    We live in a world and a country where assimilation is the norm.  The truth is assimilation has been going on for centuries for Jews.  For example- if you go by the biblical standards- religion is passed on the fathers side.  Because of the horrors of what happened in Eastern Europe a few centuries ago- it switched to the mother's side.  See Jews with blue eyes? If Jews are Semites, how is that possible since blue eyes are recessive and brown eyes are dominant genetically.

    The parents can guilt the crap out of their child- but the fact is the child is the one with the trump card- grandchildren- they cannot pass on THEIR grandchildren.

    Janine Lea

    +Ian Levy there's nothing wrong with Assimilation. You can have that, and keep your own family traditions as well.
    Many diverse cultures have come together in the melting pot we call the United States, and many of us have managed to keep many of our old world traditions within the culture of America.
    What American isn't IRISH on St. Patty's day? But then we have our own holidays. Whether it's Yom Kippur, or Ramadan or Christmas or Kwanzaa.
    It's all a part of who and what we are.

    Ian Levy

    @Ephraim Lehrer
    Sorry dude- you are wrong.  Judiasm switched to the mothers side after the horrors in Russia and eastern Europe.  The fact is biblical Judiasm went thru the fathers side.

    As for Religion and or race- for Jews it is both and the same.

    Boy Bergs

    @Janine Lea Well said Janine!
