Mendel Hurwitz woke up Tuesday morning to find himself a viral sensation.

The 15-year-old son of Budapest-based Chabad-Lubavitch emissaries was profiled in a popular, new television series exploring religion. The episode documents Mendel’s bar mitzvah two years ago and his newfound status as an adult in the eyes of the Jewish community.

Mendel viewed the coverage as a “chance to make a positive impression about Jewish life to the world, and share the meaning he finds in Jewish life and observance.”
