Aleph Bais

Here is a funny parody on Na'omi Shemer's children's song based on the Hebrew alphabet. The singers make fun of the violent protests by the ultra-orthodox against the Gay Pride Parade in Jerusalem and other things that they call Hilul HaShem ( or that somehow hurt their feelings or their position ). This clip was taken from a satirical show with, among others, Uri Gotlieb. It appears to have been broadcast around Purim. Although you have to have a basic knowledge of Hebrew, Yiddish and the Israeli news to appreciate this video and understand what it jokes about, I thought it deserved a posting on my weblog.
