That is way cool. One of the comments says the lyrics are the Hebrew alphabet and then followed by the words said during Sukkot?

This is really cool! and yeah the lyrics are a few rounds of the letters of the alphabet, cycling through the different vowels, then a hymn from Hoshana Rabba (last day of sukkot, where you beat willow leaves on the ground, which is also echoed in the video).

Awesome find.

So I was listening to PRI's The World today on the commute home, and lo and behold: The 'edgiest' singer on Israeli airwaves is an Orthodox mother of three!

The audio piece of the story is pretty much just the Vox Tablet piece I linked above, but still, cool!
