An important part of being Jewish is the notion of Kiddush Hashem—sanctifying God’s name through good deeds. Late night TV host Jimmy Kimmel has a bit about how long it’ll take people to help someone who asks for help on the sidewalk of Hollywood. In this case, a man dressed as Spongebob SquarePants. It took six minutes and the first people to help him up were a group of Orthodox boys (they then danced in a circle singing hava nagila).
