Israeli Dancers Defy Ultra-Orthodox Public Orders

Check out this flash-mob of Israeli women who converged on the town square at Beit Shamesh last Friday to stage a protest dance and counter ultra-orthodox attempts to  segregate this town by gender and ban women from singing and dancing in public. Hat tip to Peace Now for the link and kudos to Renana Levine, the producer of this video, which seems to have gone viral. And, of course, to all the unladylike ladies who  gathered in the "House of the Rising Sun" to press their point of view.
