And Now For Something Completely Different

A friend sent this to me:
TUMBALALAIKA

    The Portuguese-Sephardic Synagogue in Amsterdam is lit only by candles. Built several hundred years ago, it was never electrified. The ark, seats, bimah etc., were all handmade by ship builders.

     During World War Two, the Nazis missed it and never entered. Completely intact and original, it is beautiful.

     Enjoy the singing!

What is also wonderful is that the 8th Airforce also missed it!
Great clip, beautiful singing, beautiful location!
