'Hava Nagillah' on a Sunday afternoon
December 14, 2018
The month of December is always busy with the celebration of Chanukah and preparations for the coming secular new year. The residents of Brookdale Island Lake and friends inaugurated the holiday season by viewing “Hava Nagillah, The Movie,” on Sunday afternoon right before the lighting of the first candle of Chanukah. “The Movie” takes the viewer on a journey from the Ukraine to the United States in search of the origins of the internationally famous time. The movie was well received and many participants stated that they learned much and totally enjoyed hearing Hava Nagillah sung by Harry Belafonte, Danny Kate, as well as hearing Connie Francis recall how popular her recordings of this song were.
