Music and dance has the ability to unify all people from a variety of backgrounds.
To celebrate Purim and spread the joy, well-known musical entertainment DJ Rafi has traveled around Jerusalem to celebrate the holiday.
"No matter where you're from, your age or your beliefs, DANCE connects us all," he wrote in a Facebook post, which he posted together with a video.
Jerusalemites, tourists, men, women, soldiers and even fellow musicians joined in the dance party, which took different parts of Jerusalem by storm as he taught several groups some dance moves and a few flash mobs ensued.
Carrying signs with the words "Happy Purim," wearing shtick like humoros red noses, funky glasses, wigs and other props, the groups laughed and danced to the rhythm of the beat as onlookers watched and photographed.
"After our last video we made for Hannukah, we decided to go out to the streets of Jerusalem and get people dancing and smiling in honor of the Purim holiday," DJ Rafi wrote.
