Watch Gene Simmons speaking Hebrew!

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

Gene Simmons, or Chaim Weitz, went back to his roots by publishing a video with a personal message to Israeli students at the World ORT-affiliated Shifman High School in Tirat HaCarmel, near Haifa. Simmons was born in Haifa but went to school in Tirat HaCarmel.

In the video, Simmons starts with a little Hebrew (which was pretty impressive, although he made some minor grammar errors), and switches to some words of encouragements for the students to stop being lazy and start working hard, so they can be great rockers like him. Or at least get a good job.

Too bad he didn’t sing “I wanna rock and roll all night and study every day.”
