After the chaos of Creation, the “Rhythm” of the world takes hold.
It is a simple beat, but for the kids who were chosen to perform in the rhythm section, it was a great accomplishment!
In this clip you can not hear it, but the audience had joined in, and their enthusiastic clapping almost drowned out the performers. All who attended came away changed, filled with “happy”–these kids are contagious!
…And God said let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life. And fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven…
The girls were so excited to use their feathery wings to “fly” across the stage. Delightful!
One of the most wonderful things about the evening was that everybody volunteered their time and resources. From the filming to create the backdrops, the voice of “God” as well as a few songs by the singer Adam, the artist who created the paintings “live”, even the purchase of canvas and paints–given freely and joyfully. All came together eagerly to help these beautiful children with their performance. The love and giving of these children is so open and free. As Mayor Nir Barkat said in his opening remarks, this group truly shows that in Jerusalem , Everything is Possible!
The waters receded and the dry land appeared. During the performance, while costumes changes were being made, the audience was treated to beautiful scenes of an artist “painting the days of creation” In all live performances, there are glitches, and in this clip we see that these precious girls are no exception. But, as the audience watched, it was not the lost steps or the problem with removal of outer costumes that the audience saw–it was the determination to complete their task–and God saw that it was good–and the evening and the morning were the third day…
