Pioneer Valley Jewish Film Festival: Hava Nagila (The Movie)

Tuesday, Apr 9, 2013 1:00p
Springfield Jcc Springfield, MA

From the Ukraine to YouTube, this documentary romps through the history, mystery, and meaning of “Hava Nagila,” the great Jewish standard. From Eastern Europe shtetls to Israel’s formative years to Bar Mitzvah staple, the ubiquitous dance melody (“Let us rejoice”) was adopted even by those with no connection to its Jewish roots. Interviews with Harry Belafonte, Leonard Nimoy, Connie Francis and others are blended with campy clips from Bob Dylan, Elvis, and Chubby Checker.
