Israel's HaHafuch comedy troupe has been featured many times here at Jewish Humor Central. They do improv and sketch comedy in their periodic shows in Jerusalem. We try to see their performances whenever we're in Jerusalem.
This year they're performing in mid-June and we're visiting now and in December. So we'll have to manage with viewing the funny video clips that they post on YouTube. And they're really funny.
Most of us are familiar with the custom of throwing candy, either as individual pieces or wrapped up in small bags at Bar Mitzvah boys and Bat Mitzvah girls when they complete their Torah reading in the synagogue. But the HaHafuch crew asked why should such a fun custom be limited to these occasions? Why not throw candy on other happy occasions?
The occasions they picked for this video should produce at least a chuckle, if not an outright LOL. How about throwing candy when a waiter brings your order immediately? On acceptance of an engagement ring? When a dog does what he's asked to do? Or when two JDaters realize that they both look exactly like their online photos? The possibilities are endless.
Enjoy, and Shabbat shalom from the City of Gold.
