Matan Torah Reinacted at Cheder

A Cheder Rebi , is seen performing a reenactment of the the giving of the Torah, per the Medrashim that Hashem asked all the nations of the world if they were interested in accepting the Torah, and they each rejected the offer.  The teacher is seen offering the Torah to a a non-Jew in front of the children of the school, asking him if he wants to accept it. The gentile, who is most probably an employee at the institution, responds in Yiddish "no no". Then the Rebbe asks the kids if they will accpet the Torah, and they all yell "yes!"
