Hudi Talks About Singing “Hello” to his New Baby - A Jewish Baby Story
When Hudi had a new baby, he learned that many new parents give a speech during the bris or baby naming about the child's new name. He and his wife decided to go instead sing a song. They chose a song close to them, to Gonzo the Muppet, and to anyone who’s ever experienced emotions: I'm Going to Go Back There Someday, from the Muppet Movie. The song became the emotional centerpiece of the ceremony and tears flowed all around.
