Recently, the woman, dubbed "the Jewish dancer" appeared in a wedding at Bethlehem. Guests who saw her perform said she quickly turned into the highlight of the night, and came up in almost every conversation during the event.


The wedding sensation, whose name and other identifying details remain unknown, reportedly charges an astronomic amount of NIS 1,600 (about $425) for every 15 minutes of performance.


Her much acclaimed appearance in Bethlehem earned her at least NIS 2,700 (about $718) for the night.


In a conversation with Ynet, relatives of the family who organized the event said they did not know the woman's name, but noted that she has become the latest hit in the West Bank.


Palestinian website PNN also wrote about the mystery woman, discussing whether the Jewish Israeli's presence in the West Bank is legitimate or controversial.
