Rabbi Areyah Kaltmann has created Latke Larry a singing rabbi doll with a bushy beard and a pan of latkes and has faith it will be the kosher Santa Claus for Chanukah.
In his words, He is one funky rabbi if I do say so myself.
As an added bonus, Latke Larrys voice is supplied by Jerry Stiller, who sings a song that ends, Finally I have some Serenity Now, in reference to his famous Seinfeld episode.
Kaltmann reveals, When Jerry heard all proceeds benefit kids with special needs [through a group called The Friendship Circle], he said, Of course Ill do it. I love Jerry Stiller.
The doll isnt on the market yet it can be pre- ordered online at latkelarry.com but Kaltmann says hes already thinking about working with Ben Stiller or Adam Sandler on the sequel.
But the rabbi doesnt want to reveal too much because hes afraid someone might take the idea and run with it.
