As pop culture gurus around the world give in to the Harlem Shake - the latest video craze - the Jewish world is not slow to join in. 

The video usually starts with one person, often masked in some way, dancing alone to Harlem Shake by Baauer, while the surrounding crowd ignores him. A few seconds later, the video cuts to all-out dance fever, with everyone in the shot bopping along. 
Here are some of the kosher versions of the newest viral phenomenom.
