Imagine this: It’s the end of Yom Kippur, you’re famished, verging on delirious, and suddenly, you’re transported into a Wonka Land filled with matzo ball soup ponds, pickles, matzo farfel and a large deli sandwich. In this scenario, you’re also Ben Still hosting Saturday Night Live this Saturday just after Yom Kippur.

Stiller and Andy Samberg broke the fast together in the opening scene of SNL with a musical ode to Jewish food: “Come with me and you’ll be in a world of pure imagination… a magical world of Jewish foods, it’s every taste you’ve ever dreamed of from salty to fishy.”

This might just be our favorite SNL sketch ever!
