We don’t know about you, but back when we went to Jewish sleepaway camp, the most exciting form of entertainment was a shoddy production of “Bye Bye Birdie.” Apparently things have changed — at least for the kids at Camp Mesorah, who on Sunday night were treated to a concert by Edon Pinchot, aka the Jewish Justin Bieber.

Pinchot, an Orthodox Jewish teenager from Skokie, Ill., made waves in the Jewish world, and on national television, when he appeared last year on “America’s Got Talent.” He was eliminated in the semi-finals.

Here, a video of the kippah-wearing cutie singing some of this summer’s biggest hits for a crowd of lucky campers.
