Unless you're a member of the Orthodox community, you're unlikely to have heard of one of the biggest groups around. The Chevra, are a Jewish boy band who can best be described as a kosher cross between The Backstreet Boys and G4.
The brainchild of Eli Gerstner, who writes and produces their songs, the band is a four-piece consisting of Dovid, Avi, Donny and David.
So far they've released three albums, but they're best known for the track Lecha, which appears on their most recent release The Chevra 2. The song has become such a cult classic that it's even spawned its own unofficial video, currently doing the rounds online.
Directed by someone called David Lavon, it was filmed in several locations including Israel, the US and London, England – and features a cast of hundreds showing their fondness for the song by dancing,
miming along and generally acting goofy.
If you've never seen Orthodox Jews – or any Jews for that matter – jumping off walls le parkour style, doing backflips or acting out dance routines that spoof boy bands, then you're in for a treat. We have no idea who David Lavon is, nor why he chose The Chevra, or this particular song, but it works really well. Maybe they should get him to do an official video.
