It wasn’t another day at the office.
The American tech entrepreneur Marc Randolph was recording another episode for his business podcast “That Will Never Work” and ended up celebrating a personal milestone.
Randolph, a Silicon Valley investor who co-founded the Netflix video streaming service, welcomed to his show the Lubavitcher brothers Yossi Chayo and Levi Chayo.
The two founded and operate Bellissimo Custom Hats in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood and are behind a line of fedoras made of rabbit fur felt. They spoke with Randolph about their founding and growth.
Following their interview, the Chayos inquired about Randolph’s background. He was born as the eldest child to a Jewish family in Chappaqua, New York.
Asked about Tefillin, the 64-year-old Randolph said he has never put them on. So the Chayo brothers offered him to put them on then and there. He agreed and thus celebrated his Bar Mitzvah.
With their help, he recited the blessings and the “Shema Yisroel.” Following that, the three broke into a Chassidic dance to celebrate the special occasion.
“He was very emotional and grateful,” they told COLlive.com.
The episode with the brothers is expected to be released in September.
