      "Shake Well" is a short video filmed & edited by Yosef Adest and directed by Yishai Fleisher. The clip shows what happens when the everyday waving of the four species during Sukkot affects one's actions when asked to simply... shake.

      "The traditions and ancient culture of the Jewish people are perhaps no better exemplified than during the festive Sukkot holiday" explains Fleisher "The celebrations include building and dwelling in an organic nature hut (Sukkah) and the mystical practice of combining and waving 4 plants in all directions during prayer. While Sukkot is just one week a year, our 'Sleepy Guy' (played by Ariel Zellman) proves that the energy of Sukkot lasts all year long. Shake Well!"
