Students at the Makor Chaim yeshiva, also known as the “Steinsaltz” yeshiva in Gush Etzion south of Jerusalem, turn into a “flash mob” every year before Purim to get everyone in the right mood for the holiday.

This year, they took over the upscale Mamilla Mall, opposite the Old City in Jerusalem, to stage their Purim dance.

    What’s with the boys wearing the keffiyeh….they were not inventive enough to think of something more palatable to wear? Very poor choice on their part

  6. Crazy students of yeshiva .

  9. Why don’t they take back the temple already ?!

  10. Eva Feld says:

    I'm a little confused! The Yeshiva boys can dance in a Mall, Do not have to serve in the IDF or, don't want to. No girls allowed? Why? Tzni-oot? Straighten me out, Please. The girls go to Yeshiva and then marry and every 2 years produce a child, and the boys and girls have no contact with the girls before they marry. Great now the boys learn what trade? And the girls learn what trade, beyond producing the babies. I'm confused, are you? Well, straighten this out for me, I can't figure it out in today's society. What a terrible God Given waste of talent.

    I can identify with that, even though I'm not religious! Great job guys and just in case… MAY GOD BLESS YOU!

  14. I hate to disappoint you guys but before you make racist comments find out about the yeshiva first. The boys in this yeshiva all go on to serve in the army, some in top units, and they take community service as well as a top priorit
