A video has emerged of Mordechai Ben David walking off stage after an attendee at a concert refused to put out his cigarette.
The footage was sent to Matzav.com by a reader, who stated that this took place at an event in Argentina.
Mordechai Ben David was singing Ana Melech, which appeared on his Efshar Letakein album and was composed by Shlomo Yehuda Rechnitz, when the incident occurred. The exchange was captured by a cell phone camera. R’ Mordechai asked the attendee to take his smoke outside, and when he refused to comply, R’ Mordechai promptly departed the stage.
R’ Mordechai had asked the crowd earlier to stop smoking.
