Hava Nagila (The Movie)

"Through the unlikely prism of this song [Hava Nagila] the documentary manages to tell a complicated story of cultural adaptation while providing a fresh look at a good chunk of modern Jewish history, from poverty to plenty, from the shtetl in Ukraine to Israel to the suburbs of America…" -- –Rachel Saltz, New York Times, February 28, 2013.

Presented by Kenneth Waltzer, MSU James Madison College and the MSU Jewish Studies Program and Joanna Bosse, MSU Residential College in the Arts and Humanities and the MSU College of Music
