Just wanted to let you know about a great article about the history of Hava Nagila written by historian/musicologist Jim Loeffler that's featured on MyJewishLearning's homepage this week. It's got fun audio clips too: MyJewishLearning.com - Culture: Hava Nagila's Long Strange Trip
Personally, we prefer the "Yidcore" punk version to "Me First and the Gimee Gimees'" version, but "Me First..." has the better band name.
