Resuscitation of an Old Bromide
by: Schvach Yid

There’s some hype over a new rendition of that old Jewish musical classic, Hava Negila, which according to the language chachamim translates as ‘Let Us Rejoice’ (frankly, I think this translation gives this time-honored musical piece a very un-Jewish Bach-like identity).

The act is caught on video by YouTube, and can be viewed and read about at:

The YouTube site has video links to a variety of renditions, including one that features Bob Dylan playing harmonica.

The big deal? Well, this rendering features a jazzed-up Sephardic/Mizrachi beat which I find refreshing, as opposed to the standard old version which has always bored me.

If you find the performance too teeny-bop, or in violation of Derech HaTznius (and it is!) just close your eyes or flip through a mag while listening to the tune. According to, the vocal performer, Lauren Rose (née Goldberg) is a mere 17 years of age; her audience participants are evidently much younger.
