TEANECK, N.J. — Dozens of people gathered at Keter Torah in Teaneck on Tuesday night to see the acrobatic Twins From France breathe fire, run up walls and balance on wobbly objects.
The twins, 26, of Marseilles, France, have performed for Jewish communities in dozens of countries including Australia, China, Russia and Israel.
Israel and Yacov Gurion have been performing together since 2005. They often take to the streets of Brooklyn, New York — where Israel lives with his wife, Rochel, and daughter, Shaina — to practice their tricks.
"The goal is to bring joy to children's face," said Rochel Samuels Gurion, who often accompanies her husband to hospitals, camps and community centers.
