Men's Religious Dance School Celebrates Yom Haatzmaut


Graduates of the Kol Atzmotai Tomarna Dance Theater School for Men performed with famous Israeli musician Shlomo Gronich at a special Yom Haatzmaut show. The Jerusalem's based school's name roughly translates as "All My Bones Shall Say" and is taken from Psalms.

Ronen Yitzhaki, director of school told Arutz Sheva news that he was proud of the new graduates who participated in the performance. "Such a wonderful thing can only happen only in Israel. Diaspora Jews sometimes regarded the body as something almost profane. But once we arrived here to Israel, we began to work the soil, join the army, explore the land, wear sandals or go barefoot. To summarize, we began to feel our body and to understand another language.," he stated. "It is also related to everyday life and worship of G-d... learning to make art in a different language," Yitzhaki stated.
