Lecture: Hava Nagila – How a Song Defines a People

May 24 @ 7:00 pm

The song “Hava Nagila” is instantly recognizable; musical shorthand for anything Jewish, a happy party tune that you dance to at weddings, bar mitzvahs and even at Major League Baseball games. It carries with it an entire constellation of history, values and hopes for the future. In its own believe-it-or-not way, “Hava Nagila” encapsulates the Jewish journey over the past 150 years. It also reveals the power of one song to express and sustain identity, to transmit lessons across generations and to bridge cultural divides and connect us all on a universal level. Includes performances by many artists. Presented by lecturer, historian, and composer, Jeff Kampf of Life Long Cognition on Tuesday, May 24, 7pm.
