Ninth Houston Jewish Film Festival Closing Night: Hava Nagila - The Movie

Photo by Jenny Jimenez

Ever wonder about the origins and history of the tune that is played at almost every Bar Mitzvah party and Jewish wedding? Then don't miss Hava Nagila, the movie. Black, Italian and Irish Americans all connect to and perform "Hava Nagila," a tune recognizable all over the world, having traveled from the Ukraine to YouTube. But then, who would not like a song whose title means, let us rejoice.

Filmmaker Roberta Grossman will be in attendance. A closing night reception follows the screening.
