The definitive, glorious (and musical) story of how the Hebrew song "Hava Nagila (Let Us Rejoice)," set to a traditional melody from the Ukraine, became the signature theme of Jewish life. Despite having become truly Universal in appeal, the song never lost either its Jewish soul or origin. Features interviews with Harry Belafonte, Leonard Nimoy, Connie Francis, and Glen Campbell, as well as performances of the song by Belafonte, Francis, Danny Kaye, Bob Dylan, Lena Horne, Regina Spektor and Chubby Checker. Plan to walk out humming--or maybe singing out loud--this very special and universally appealing melody.
