Hava Nagila
Monday November 5 2012 10:00 - 17:45
You can hear it at every Jewish wedding or bar mitzvah, and it has been performed by artists ranging from Harry Belafonte to Bob Dylan—but not many people can pinpoint what exactly made "Hava Nagila" such a cultural staple. This interactive multimedia exhibit explores the history of the famous folk song with inventive displays, a documentary featuring celebrity interviews, and, of course, lots of music.
