It took until the age of 64 for Netflix co-founder, Marc Randolph, to finally celebrate his bar mitzvah.

While recording an episode, with Lubavitcher brothers Yossi Chayo and Levi Chayo – who founded and operate Bellissimo Custom Hats in Crown Heights – for his business podcast, That Will Never Work, the American tech entrepreneur ended up marking this special milestone.

After speaking about the business’ founding and growth, the Chayos asked Randolph about his background – he was born to a Jewish family in Chappaqua, New York. When asked about tefillin, Randolph admitted that he had never put them on, so the Chayos stood with him while he fulfilled the mitzvah then and there.

With their help, Randolph celebrated his bar mitzvah, reciting the appropriate blessings and the Shema.

The trio then broke into a traditional hora.

Mazal tov!
