(Scroll down for video) This week, the Jewish people are celebrating the holiday of Passover.

Before the onset of Passover, Jews around the world did a thorough cleaning of their houses to make sure their are no leavened bread items to be found in the house.

One group of young people did the Harlem Shake dance while cleaning for Passover.

According to the video uploaded to YouTube, this video was done in New York, although the description is written in Hebrew.

“As Jews around the world are in a cleaning frenzy, we here in New York are having a good time with it,” they wrote.

The Harlem Shake, is best known as the video meme with the dance done to the song Harlem Shake, by Baauer.

The Harlem Shake meme consists of a 30 second short video, which begins with one person dancing, typically wearing something that covers the head.

The person enters a room and casually bops the head to the music, while other people around go about routine business.

Then the camera shot changes and suddenly an entire crowd of people appear, as they dance along with doing silly moves. They also wave their hands while moving their feet. They may seem silly but they are actually doing the popular Harlem Shake.
