What is a High Holiday season without the Chabad Telethon? Held last Sunday, the telethon raised millions of dollars for the Chabad organization. But what makes the telethon so unique is their ability to attract “big” name celebrities to perform for the ultra-Orthodox crowd.

And this year was no different. I’m very happy to pass on this video from The Tonight Show, with highlights of Triumph the Insult Comic Dog at the Chabad Telethon. Thankfully for them, yet regrettable for me, Triumph was very, very tame, compared to his usual self.
