Chief Rabbi at Scottish wedding
A video showing Chief Rabbi Sir Jonathan Sacks letting his hair down and dancing a Scottish jig at a wedding has surfaced on popular video sharing site YouTube.
In the video, which was taken on a mobile phone, Sir Jonathan is seen dancing and laughing with a group of men wearing a kilt, Scottish flag and a multi-coloured cardboard crown.
According to the poster of the video, djacobson82, Sir Jonathan was attending a wedding in Scotland.
Another YouTube user, HP2575 added a comment revealing: "This was at my cousin's wedding! One of the highlights of the evening!"
A YouTube insider said that the video is already the number one result for the search term Chief Rabbi and could become one of its most popular Jewish videos beating the famous Shalom spoof of the Budweiser Wazz Up.
"In less than a couple of weeks, this has started to grab people's attention," the insider said. "Even though it was recorded on a mobile phone, you can clearly see the Chief Rabbi is having a great time."
