I just felt like sharing this clip from Disney's Beauty and Beast, gloriously sung in Hebrew.

Does anyone else here get the feeling of this being set in a medieval French town that could perhaps be Troyes, where Rashi was born and lived? Can you spot any other Jewish features in this clip? (I spotted the lady at 2:35 who took off her sheitel in the hat shop. LOL)

How fun! I listened trying to pick out how many Hebrew words I recognized. Not nearly enough... I need to study harder!

I've been picking out Hebrew words I recognize, too! When Belle enters the bookseller's shop and asks if he's got any new books, I'm sure I heard the Hebrew word chadash (meaning "new").

Thanks for posting this!


I heard, "Boker Tov". And when the man handed her the book in 1:43, she looked at the book the correct way if you're reading Hebrew, with the binding of the book to the right.
