Chanukah Countdown: The Making of the Flash Mob Dancing in Jerusalem Video

Last Wednesday we posted a video of 150 people singing and dancing to Chanukah music in a seemingly spontaneous happening in the streets of Jerusalem.  Like us, you probably wondered how they could pull off such a stunt.

Well, it happened really fast.  The call for participants went out on Facebook five days before the event.  Within two hours of posting more than 60 people said they would attend.  Over 150 showed up.  The choreography was completely taught and directed in one hour.  No one had any previous knowledge of the dance.

With Chanukah only 8 days away, here's a look behind the scenes of how the production came together.  Enjoy!
