In Moshav Nevatim, immigrants from Cochin Jewry celebrate Simchat Torah. Some of the residents then perform several traditional dances wearing colorful sari dresses. Some of the dances are accompanied by drums and singing. This rare documentation is part of the collection of Gurit Kadman, a dancer, choreographer, and pioneer of the folk and dance enterprise in Israel, who worked to document and preserve the folklore dances of the various communities and in Israel.
