Congregation Merkaz Ha-Iyr introduces “Dreidel Shark”Posted: December 4, 2014
“No one spins a dreidel like the dreidel shark,” according to a new video produced by members of Congregation Merkaz Ha-Iyr in Phoenix.
“The Dreidel Shark,” aka Asher Kaye, hustles other children in dreidel games. The song was written by Merkaz member Randy Warner and sung by his daughter Sarah Warner. The video was produced and directed by member Stan Burech, the father of Rabbi Erica Burech. Other congregants – children and adults – sing and act in the video.
Randy Warner said he wrote the song about three years ago and last year after his daughter took voice classes at school, they decided to record it. The bulk of the filming was done this past spring and the progressive Jewish congregation, which meets at the corner of Central and Northern avenues in Phoenix, debuted the video at a Nov. 14 Shabbat service.
