Origin[edit] Abraham Zevi Idelsohn (1882–1938), a professor at Hebrew University, began cataloging all known Jewish music and teaching classes in musical composition; one of his students was a promising cantorial student, Moshe Nathanson,[2] who (with the rest of his class) was presented by the professor with a 19th-century, slow, melodious, chant (niggun or nigun) and assigned to add rhythm and words to fashion a modern Hebrew song.[citation needed] There are competing claims regarding Hava Nagila's composer, with both Idelsohn and Nathanson being suggested.[3][4] The niggun he presented has been attributed to the Sadigurer Chasidim, who lived in what is now Ukraine,[3] which uses the Phrygian dominant scale common in music of Transylvania.[citation needed] The commonly used text was probably refined by Idelsohn.[5][better source needed] [6][original research?] In 1918, the song was one of the first songs designed to unite the early Yishuv [Jewish enterprise] that arose after the British victory in Palestine during World War I and the Balfour Declaration, declaring a national Jewish homeland in the lands newly removed from Turkey's control by the Allies and entrusted to Britain under the Treaty of Versailles.[citation needed] Although Psalm 118 (verse 24) of the Hebrew Bible may have been a source for the text of "Hava Nagila",[citation needed] the expression of the song and its accompanying hora ("circle") dance was entirely secular in its outlook.[citation needed]

Be-lev sameaḥ בלב שמח   With a happy heart Note: The “ḥ” can be pronounced as a voiceless pharyngeal fricative [ħ] (as in classical Hebrew) or a voiceless uvular fricative [χ], as “ch” as in Bach (modern Hebrew pronunciation).

Party Animals Recording[edit] "Hava Naquila" Single by Party Animals from the album Good Vibrations Released 6 April 1996 Genre Happy Hardcore, Gabber Length 3:46 Label Mokum Records Songwriter(s) Traditional Producer(s) Flamman & Abraxas Party Animals singles chronology "Have You Ever Been Mellow" (1996) "Hava Naquila" (1996) "Aquarius" (1996) "Have You Ever Been Mellow" (1996) "Hava Naquila" (1996) "Aquarius" (1996) Music video "Hava Naquila" (Official) on YouTube "Hava Naquila" is the second single of the Party Animals from their debut album Good Vibrations. The song was released in 1996 and is a happy hardcore version of the classic folk song "Hava Nagila" set in a gabber beat. The single was certified Gold.[7] The fourth track of the single, "Die Nazi Scum", was intended to show that not all gabbers were racists. The song spent 12 weeks in the Dutch Top 40, of which three were spent on the number one position for. The song was number 14 on the end of the year list of 1996. A strange anomaly is that "Hava Naquila" took the number one position from "Captain Jack" by Captain Jack, but was replaced by another release from Captain Jack, "Drill Instructor".

Use in sports[edit] Association football[edit] Ajax Amsterdam Supporters of the Dutch association football club AFC Ajax, although not an official Jewish club, commonly use Jewish imagery. A central part of Ajax fans' culture, the song Hava Nagila can often be heard sung in the Stadium by the teams supporters, and at one point ringtones of "Hava Nagila" could even be downloaded from the club's official website.[21][22][23] Tottenham Hotspur Supporters of the English football club Tottenham Hotspur commonly refer to themselves as Yids and are strongly associated with Jewish symbolism and culture. The song "Hava Nagila" has been adopted as an anthem of sorts by the club, and is one of the most frequently sung songs at White Hart Lane.[24][25]
