Its latest Purim video, just released on YouTube, shows a group of physics students doing their own version of the Harlem Shake, a 1980s dance recently re-popularized that has individuals dressed in strange attire jerking themselves around to the sounds of an electronic dance track. It starts with one person dancing alone, with the rest of the group looking on indifferently, but about halfway through, everyone else joins in.
