What started as a fun play on words has turned into a new business for Andrew Roffe, a former North Shore kid who has moved to Hollywood to pursue his dream of being a filmmaker. The son of Tony Award-winning theater producer Mary Lu Roffe (“Spamalot,” “Boeing-Boeing,” “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf”), Andrew has taken the ubiquitous Jewish phrase “Mazel tov” (good luck) and had some fun with it.

The result is his line of “Mazel Tough” T-shirts and tank tops, which are sure to garner a smile by anyone catching sight of the artwork on the casual apparelRoffe is marketing.

They certainly are perfect for those 98-pound weaklings at the gym aiming to pack on some muscle — whether they’re Jewish or not!

For more information on the shirts go to bemazeltough.comwhere you can check out Roffe’s very funny rap video promoting it all.

By the way, there’s also a charitable angle to this as well. A portion of the sales go to the Tikva House, which is a Jewish orphanage in Odessa, Ukraine.
