Part 1 of 12~Hora Efrochim~Introduction & Flash Mob

Hora Efrochim is the youth group of Hora Jerusalem Dance Company. Lead by choreographer Adi Gordon Rawlings, Hora Efrochim is one of very best children's dance troupes in the world. The prestigious Hora Dance Company has been chosen by the Israel Foreign Affairs Office and the Israel Tourism Office to represent Israel at International Folk Festivals and Concerts world wide.

Some time ago, David filmed the group when they performed a "Flash Mob at Mamilla Mall". Almost two hundred dancers, ranging in ages from ten to fifty years young, surprised shoppers and tourists on a sunny afternoon at the new Mamilla center, located just outside the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem.

In this first clip you will see scenes from the Mamilla Flash Mob that the Foreign Ministry sponsored and produced in the background, as the troupe performs the dance simultaneously on stage to the song Pitom Kam Adam~At Once a Man (Israel) Arises

* The translation of the words to the song are Below the Video...

We are pleased to present the first of our twelve part series of dances performed in 2012 by Hora Efrochim, at the Jerusalem Theater, for  the Jerusalem Arts Festival.

 Part 1 of 12~Hora Efrochim Introduction & Flashmob

Suddenly a man arises (wakes up) in the morning 
He feels he is a nation and begins to walk 
And to all he meets on his way he calls out 'Shalom!' 

Corn stalks are growing up behind him between the cracks in the sidewalks
The lilac trees shower down rich fragrance on his head 
The dew drops are sparkling and the hills are a myriad of rays 
They will give birth to a canopy of sunlight for his wedding 

Suddenly a man arises (wakes up) in the morning... 
And he laughs with the strength of generations in the mountains, 
And the shamed wars bow down to the ground, 
To the glory of a thousand years flowing forth from the hiding places, 
A thousand young years in front of him like a cold book, 
Like a shepherd's song, like a branch. 

Suddenly a man arises (wakes up) in the morning 
He feels he is a nation and begins to walk, 
And he sees that the spring has returned 
And the tree is turning green since last fall's tree shedding.
