      I was just going to post that the Idelsohn Society should contact Robert Siegel at NPR. Hatch’s song is awful by any measure, measure by measure.

    Idelsohn Didn’t write Hava Nagila. Its an old Hebrew folk song set to an old Ukrainian folk song. Idelsohn simply wrote the most commonly cited modern version of the lyrics.

    You can also check out the cool “Jews on Vinyl” exhibition at the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco.

    Me First and the Gimmie Gimmies also have a pretty cool cover of Hava Nagila as well.
