by Chaya Cikk

This is one of Europe’s largest music festivals. You wouldn’t believe that this classic Israeli song was played there. Hava Nagila is a very awesome upbeat song that is known throughout the world.

Music Festivals

There are so many amazing music festivals that take place all over the world. Thousands upon thousands of people attend. Additionally, they all have awesome musicians and bands playing there. Many people sleep in tents and wait all night for tickets just to attend these festivals.

This festival though was different. It sang a special song called Hava Nagila. A song that is a traditional Israeli folk song. Furthermore, did you see the first word there? Israeli! I wonder what the Boycott Movement has to say about an Israeli folk song being played at a music festival in Europe.

In addition, you can see everyone in this music video clapping and dancing along with the song. It looks like everyone is having a good time.

Hava Nagila

A well-known song and played at many celebrations, such as weddings, bar mitzvah, and bat mitzvahs. It was composed in the early 1900s and was one of the first songs written in the revived Hebrew language.

A song that mentions happiness and that we should rejoice. Particularly, this song united the Jewish people living here. Many of them sang it as a show of happiness after the Balfour Declaration. It can be heard in many videos of people dancing after Israel was declared a State. Finally, this is such an upbeat awesome song. What’s not to love about it? If you see someone with a frown this upbeat music will turn that frown upside down.


Let us rejoice, let us rejoice, let us rejoice and be glad 
Let us sing, let us sing, let us sing and be glad 
Awake, my brothers, awake, my brothers!
With a happy heart
