Olympic crowds got a real treat last night: Ice skaters Roman and Alexandra Zaretsky twirled around to the Bar Mitzvah favorite, the “Hava Nagila.” The brother/sister duo, dressed in orthodox-style outfits with heads covered by yarmulke and schmatta, respectively, played a young groom and bride. Thought it hasn’t hit YouTube quite yet — possibly due to the creepiness of watching siblings play romantic leads — you can see it here, or check out the routine as performed in Torino below.
Israeli Olympians Skate to “Hava Nagila” and the Music from “Schindler’s List”
Be sure to tune in tonight for what’s sure to be the best Holocaust-related Olympics moment since Jessie Owens made Hitler doubt Aryan superiority. The Zaretskys will skate to the music from Schindler’s List.
Seriously. That’s not a joke.
