Why did Nefesh B’Nefesh, an organization dedicated to bringing Jews to Israel on Aliyah and organizing bloggers conferences, organize a Flash Mob in downtown (as it were) Jerusalem last Friday? Was it in celebration of Hanukah? Must be because the mob danced to frequent Jewlicious Festival participant Smooth E’s Hanukkah Hey Ya. Others noted that perhaps Nefesh B’Nefesh was in fact making a political statement what with the mixed egalitarian dancing and all. Whatever. It was fun. Get over yourselves.

  • Is this for real? And is that Marvin in the front leading the pack? Where was I? Oh yeah…taking care of shit.

  • Heh. Margot had a sewage explosion in her apartment on Friday, 30 minutes before Shabbat. Nice. I always knew she was full of shit.

  • Remember when Smooth E launched this – we posted it on BeachHillel.com, this was PRE- YOUTUBE.

    The video became a huge phenom and we were getting crazy amounts of traffic on the beachhillel website.

    Eric has performed several times at Jewlicious Festival.

  • CK, i love you, too. What War Zone – thank you, thank you. Although, I don’t recall ever seeing you dance in person so I can’t really make a proper judgment, nonetheless, are we sure suave is the right adjective? 🙂

  • Benji! That was you at the beginning there? Fucker! Why didn’t you tell me and Margot? We would totally have come! Poop explosion or no poop explosion!

  • Hey, guys! Looks like y’all had a great time while that 17 yr.old American kid was illegally arrested by the Carmiel cops and then sat rotting in Kishon prison being physically tortured and sexually abused. To bad nobody from Nefesh B’Nefesh bothered to pick up the phone to see how they could help the family. Hey, but what the heck . . . party on! ! ! 🙂

  • Uh, what the heck if there’s no connection between the above and what you wrote, as long as you can write something nasty, right?
