A little disturbing

Since it was an accident, we could assume maybe people were injured, and in that sense it might be in bad taste to dance and be so happy when people might be suffering...

Jerusalem Mommy:

Lighten up. There was nothing that they could do for the injured except to daven for them. On the other hand there were plenty of drivers around them suffering from the almost endless wait. They brought a bit of cheer to those people - and ultimately to a much wider audience. Entirely appropriate.

Mi k'amcha Yisroel - who is like your people Israel!!

Not disturbing in the least.

To Jerusalemmommy--You know it was an accident? There is a mitzvah in the Torah called "Judging others favorably." This means if we see someone in a wrongdoing, we must first to stop, think, and consider if perhaps we are missing one crucial factor, that changes the story from the way it appears. Maybe those men were also praying that no one was hurt if there were an accident? You're so quick to judge others when you know nothing of the situation.

On the other hand...

....how do they know it was an accident? Or how do they know the accident took life?

Well done guys!

This ought to be our attitude in times of difficulty. You understand the calling of Am Israel...to be a light to the Nations. There is a higher reason why the traffic was halted. It pays to rejoice in times of difficulty, even if just to lift the spirits of others around one (this is turn will lift one's own spirit).
