Video: Yeshiva ‘Flash Mob’ Dance in Downtown Jerusalem
Only in Israel: High school yeshiva students turn downtown Jerusalem, once the scene of Arab suicide bombings, into a stage for a “flash mob” dance.
The students learn at the Makor Chaim Yeshiva, also known as the Steinsaltz Yeshiva, located in Gush Etzion south of Jerusalem. Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz, who heads Makor Chaim Torah institutions, has transformed the learning of the Talmud by translating the entire Gemarah, written primarily in Aramaic, into Hebrew, with explanations and diagrams of terms.
The video was filmed two days before Purim on the Ben Yehuda pedestrian mall, to the delight of passers-by.
