Max Greenfield Relives “SNL”-Themed Bar Mitzvah

This post first appeared on The Shmooze blog at the Forward.

Max Greenfield’s bar mitzvah was clearly a major milestone — as The Shmooze hopes it would be for any young Jewish man. The 31-year-old “New Girl” actor has been telling just about anyone who will listen to him about his “Saturday Night Live”-themed coming-of-age celebration.

On Wednesday night, Greenfield referenced his bar mitzvah again during an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” (video below). It was downright adorable as he relived memories of being a 13-year-old on his big night in Dobbs Ferry, N.Y.

When Kimmel asked what year the “SNL” bar mitzvah took place, Greenfield answered by recounting which comedians were in the cast at the time. “It was toward the end of Dennis Miller’s run, Dana Carvey was cut, but it was big on Farley and Sandler, and Spade,” he said, gesturing a lot with his hands (bar mitzvah aside, there’s no doubt the guy’s Jewish).
