Arabs and Jews dancing together at a Jewish wedding in the UAE

  1. Sorry gonna hijack your top comment to post some info. This is the wedding of a Rabbi who left his home country in order to seek out people in need in Dubai and lend spiritual and physical help to them. He has been there for almost 10 years away from all his friend's and family. He didn't wait to get married to move out there. He saw there was a community in need and he moved as a teenager. The wedding is monumental in the fact that Muslims and Jews are sharing a wonderful moment together. A lot of people here have chosen to focus on the negative (I wonder why... ). So to explain: Ultra religious Jews (and possibly Muslims idk) believe in certain codes of modesty. Among these is the choice we make to not have mixed dancing. This is purely for modesty and not for misogyny. A man would not be allowed to dance with the women either. There is a seperate women's section, equally as large and grand where the bride is celebrating with her friends and family.

  2. A whole 30 year long war cause Catholics and Protestants couldn’t get along. We worship the same God, same prophet, same Bible(to an extent)

  3. meanwhile some different flavoured every religions stone each other to death and behead each other. the truth is that the issue isn't religion its people

  4. This is what i see in religion, just being peaceful, respectful and having funny, regardless of any differences

  5. Dancing between the sexes is prohibited in Orthodox Judaism, but women do dance. We just do it together where men can’t see. I’ve always found it very freeing and there’s nothing like seeing a Bubbe (grandma) jump rope with a rope we’ve made by tying napkins together at 3 am.

  6. as a Jew I can actually tell you where the women are, within much more religious communities the men and women don't make any physical contact so during weddings we use something called a mechitza which is basically the equivalent of a table cloth hung down the middle of the room so the men and women each dance on either side with people of the same gender so as not to have any dirty thoughts about eachother for lack of better terms

  7. What's bad about this? I'm a Jew, and I promise you the women also dance. Just not with men... The video could also be a video of just women dancing...

  8. oh please, the woman may just be sitting, or in another room dancing with each other too. Just because you don't understand traditions doesn't mean you're seeing something wrong or oppressive. be a better bro

  9. And they are all wealthy, remember that ethnical discrimination is not a factor once you get past certain wealth, nobody discriminates rich people, they are all potential business partners.

  10. I am shocked at all the nasty anti Jewish and anti Arab comments, about mysogyny and everyone being filthy rich or greedy. What disgusting, uneducated, shameless bigotry. But it's Reddit, so not surprised.

  11. To me, not being total pricks to each other should be the baseline. People should not need to be praised for not smacking someone else in the face. This should be a given.

  12. But this is more than a neutral baseline of not being openly belligerent. They're actively celebrating and dancing together.

  13. as a Jew I can actually give you the exact answer, within much more religious communities the men and women don't make any physical contact so during wedding we use something called a mechitza which is basically the equivalent of a table cloth hung down the middle of the room so the men and women each dance on either side with people of the same gender so as not to have any dirty thoughts about eachother for lack of better terms

  14. Arabs and jews? More like muslims and jews. Plenty of jews in the arab world especially in places like Morocco

  15. Or more like hilighting the fact that jews and muslims all over the world naturally get along and the idea that they don't is purely political

  16. Actually same room but more religious communities hang a cloth down the middle to keep things separate so the men and women can't see eachother but they're all there together

  17. As my dad used to say the tragedy of the Palestinians isn’t that they are occupied by a brutal foreign power, after all that happens every day. The tragedy is that even their so called Muslim/ Arab brothers participate in the concept.

  18. We don’t eat pigs, and you don’t eat pigs…it seems it’s been that way forever. And if you don’t eat pigs, and we don’t eat pigs; let’s just not eat pigs together. -Tim Minchin.

  19. I remember I tried to get my male Muslim friend to dance with me when I was 12?, his mother said he couldn’t. I never understood because in my culture dancing is bonding for friends and family. And this family is very close to mine. Was sort of offended but later on I found out it was against his religion to dance with me because I was a woman. I was still offended but I understood.

  20. This is not optimism pilled. If jews and arabs not tearing each other apart is meant to be heart warming… then I simply do not understand Humanity.

  21. And like that, another Westerner trying to force their culture on the rest of the world. Cultural imperialism 101.

  22. Can someone add “ain’t talking about love” by Van Halen over this video so it can mimic the South Park episode?

  23. Or, maybe like at every Chabad wedding, they are dancing on the other side of the hall. Do some research before opening your mouth and inserting your foot.

  24. While it's nice to see the two groups having a good time, both groups depicted in this video are tremendously misogynistic. So they have a long way to go.

  25. Or, maybe like at every Chabad wedding, the women are dancing on the other side of the hall. Do some research before opening your mouth and inserting your foot.

  26. These UAE arabs are the same ones who buy property from Palestenians in front of Al-Aqsa Mosque promising to protect the heritage and then sells them to the isreali jews for "gentrification"
