Fasting on Yom Kippur can be mentally and physically draining but thankfully, nice Jewish Tribe members Ben Platt and Zoey Deutch are here to make it a little easier for you this 5780.

Deutch (“Set It Up,” “Zombieland: Double Tap”) and Platt appeared on “The Late Late Show With James Corden” Oct. 7 to promote their latest project, political satire “The Politician” now streaming on Netflix, and did a little rendition of Platt’s “Yom Kippur Song.”

Platt, a Tony, Emmy and Grammy winner, noted that growing up, his family— “the Von Platt family singers”— would often sing musical theater songs year round and for the Jewish holidays.

“I do have a Yom Kippur song that I wrote with my dear friend Molly Gordon [“Booksmart,” “Good Boys”] who is another amazing actor and we could give it a little sing for you right now,” Platt said.

Deutch, who also knew the words, joined in with Platt making it a duet that would make your bubbe kvell.

It seems a hearty Yasher Koach is in order for both. Watch the full clip below:
