Bob Saget passed away on January 9, 2022.
Born on May 17, 1956 in Philadelphia, Saget was proud to be Jewish, attended Hebrew school and celebrated his Bar Mitzvah. After experiencing terrible loss early in life, Saget used comedy to cope.
He is best known for his TV role as Danny Tanner on Full House and as host of America’s Funniest Home Videos.
In this interview with JLGB, Bob spoke about growing up Jewish, even showing off his Mezuzah, how he got into comedy and how those values guided him to give to others.
May his memory be a blessing.
