Israeli Yeshiva Boys Do a Chanukah Break Dance


When the administration of Yeshiva Reishit Yerushalayim in Beit Shemesh, Israel wrote in their mission statement that they offer balanced Torah studies and an afternoon break, they weren't kidding. A sense of balance and break, as in break dancing, are very much in evidence in this delightful Chanukah video put together by the Reishit students.

Here are some of the lyrics:

"Those Yevanim (Greeks) thought they could wipe us out.
We're lighting the menorah.
God was on our side which they didn't know about.
We're lighting the menorah.
Jews is what we are and we all unite.
We're lighting the menorah.
Publicize the neis (miracle) with our candlelight.
We're lighting the menorah." 

Enjoy! Chag Chanukah Sameach and Shabbat Shalom.
