Wedding music at Hasidic weddings is pretty predictable. That is, until now. At a recent wedding in Lakewood, New Jersey, the Meshorerim Choir sang and Naftuli Moshe Schnitzler played a "Samba Set" on the keyboard.
We found the music to be infectious as we swayed and looked for a dance partner to launch into a set of Latin American dances.
Do you think this will motivate Hasidic wedding guests to get out of their chairs and sweep across the dance floor? Will it lead to social dancing? Probably not, but who can predict what's next? The Rumba? Bossa Nova?
