Miranda's affinity for the Jewish community - and its music - has not been much of a secret. When he married his wife, Vanessa Nadal, in 2010, he arranged a surprise performance of Fiddler on the Roof's "L'Chaim" for the reception. He told The New Yorker in 2015 that in elementary school, "All my friends were Jewish, because that is who goes to Hunter." He tweeted later that year that "I was a 1st soprano in elementary school chorus and my part in Sivivon was to sing 'Sov' about 6,000 times in a row."And in 2016, Miranda narrated a fund-raising video for Yeshiva University, his old neighbor from his days growing up in Washington Heights - and where he received an honorary degree in 2009.So while Miranda may not technically be a member of the tribe - he's certainly an honorary one.
