Hava Nagila DVD
The title translates from the Hebrew as "Let's rejoice," and the adapted folk melody has become a touchstone for Jewish-American culture over the last century. This affectionate documentary tracks the tune's journey from the Ukraine into the popular pantheon, complete with the observations of cover artists including Harry Belafonte, Connie Francis, Glen Campbell, and Regina Spektor. 75 min. Soundtrack: English; interviews.
