The flash mob phenonmena

What is the deal with flash mobs? It's getting so that you can't walk through a mall or train station without half the public "spontaneously" breaking into some kind of joyous song-and-dance routine. (Okay, I admit, I never actually participated in or witnessed one of these things, but they are all over YouTube. The Black-Eyed Peas got into the act, surprising Oprah Winfrey with this:)

Now, that was a really good one.

Well, Nefesh B'Nefesh, the people who bring people to Israel, got into the act last week. Apparently, they planned a spontaneous dance on Ben Yehuda Street in Jerusalem. As these things go, it's okay. Doesn't seem very exciting to me from the video, but I'm sure it would have been fun to be there.

Tsk-tsk-tsk. Anyone note the mixed dancing?

Totally shocking.

A friend emailed us the link, and that was my reaction - MIXED DANCING? They are just having TOO much fun. ;-)

Oh, man. Jews are horrible dancers.

How can you plan a spontaneous dance?

Was it just me or did the bald guy in the center look like WhatWarZone Benjy?

I know. I'm horrified.


I thought the same thing. Everyone is raving about this video and I think it's pretty ho-hum.


I was being ironic.


I thought so too!!! If I remember, I'll ask him.

I also thought of Benji - but he was one of the opening dancers, so I dismissed that thought. Didn't look like a stand up comedian.

I LOVE it!!

I also recognized a friend in the video.

It seems like so much fun to be a part of something like this!!

I am, of course, referring to the Jerusalem scene.

I don't recognize anyone from Chicago....
