When the 16 ice skaters who comprise the synchronized ice skating Dream Team from Germany's Lower Saxony province stepped onto the ice in a competition in 2009, what song do you think they chose to skate and dance to? If you've been reading this blog for awhile, you've probably guessed it already. Of course, it's Hava Nagila, the song that has been performed all over the world in the most unusual places. (and we've got many more to share with you in the months to come).
And we thought we'd have to wait for Moshiach to come before seeing something like this.
So enjoy the six minute skating routine, which starts with Shema Yisrael before moving into Hava Nagila. If you look carefully at the dozen or so flags at one end of the arena (at around 5 minutes into the performance) you'll see the Israeli flag among them.
