Jaw-dropping footage emerging Sunday shows a giant tsunami wave sweeping away a boy band mid-performance in Indonesia.

Crowds can be seen in the shocking video swaying along to a beach-side Saturday performance by the rock band Seventeen — seconds before the natural disaster hits, engulfing the stage.

Loud shrieks can be heard before the 11-second video goes dark.

The band confirmed that their bassist M Awal Purbani, guitarist Herman Sikumbang and their road manager Oki Wijaya were dead.

Two other musicians, a crewmember and the wife of the band’s frontman are still missing.

At least 222 people are dead with 745 still missing in the tsunami hit Indonesia without any warning signs Saturday night.

    • I have not even watched the Video because I immediately thought of the reason we don’t say whole hallel on pesach. The previous comment cannot possibly be from our community. It goes against our very DNA to be cruel and heartless .

  1. Amazes me the mean spirited attitude some Frum Jews have on others who are not Jewish . What were you expecting them to be doing , learning daf yomi? Show some compassion!. If a goy would say that about a jew , immediately he will be labeled an anti semite. But vice versa is ok?

  2. From Cross-Currents; written by Rabbi Avi Shafran, 1/22/2010:

    To any early 20th century Polish Jew, Japan could as well have been Neptune.

    The distance between the shtetl and the Far East was measurable not merely in physical miles but in cultural and religious distance no less. Yet when, on September 1, 1923, a powerful earthquake hit Japan’s Kanto plain, laying waste to Tokyo, Yokohama and surrounding cities, killing well over 100,000 people, news of the disaster reached even the Polish town of Radin. That was the home of the “Chofetz Chaim,” Rabbi Yisroel Meir Kagan, the sainted Jewish scholar renowned around the world even then for his scholarship, honesty and modest life.

    Informed of the mass deaths in Japan, the 85-year-old rabbinic leader was visibly shaken, immediately undertook to fast and insisted that the news should spur all Jews to repentance.
