This definitive and musical tale explores how the Hebrew song Hava Nagila (Let Us Rejoice), set to a traditional melody from the Ukraine, became the signature theme of Jewish life. Despite having become truly universal in appeal, the song never lost either its Jewish soul or origin. The documentary features interviews with Harry Belafonte, Leonard Nimoy, Connie Francis and Glen Campbell, as well as performances of the song by Belafonte, Francis, Danny Kaye, Bob Dylan, Lena Horne, Regina Spektor and Chubby Checker.
