Chabad Rabbi Trains for Dance-a-thon

Telethons always aim to break records, but this year the producers of the “Chabad ‘To Life!’ Telethon” hope to make the Guinness Book of World Records, when Rabbi Yossi Cunin undertakes what he calls “the longest recorded Chasidic dance ever” on the show Sept. 13 on KTLA. Last Friday, the 36-year-old rabbi demonstrated just how aerobic the kazatzka can be as he and seven friends danced their way onto a live broadcast of the KTLA news, pulling the startled weatherman aside as they leapt, twirled, somersaulted and cartwheeled to klezmer music, wearing their traditional long kapote coats.
