HAVA NAGILA: THE MOVIE @ CIRCLE CINEMA – 12 S. LEWIS
JUNE 16, SUNDAY
The Jewish Federation of Tulsa in cooperation with Circle Cinema presents “Hava Nagila”: The Movie. It is instantly recognizable – musical shorthand for anything Jewish, a happy party tune that you dance to at weddings, bar mitzvahs and even at Major League Baseball games. It conjures up wistful smiles, memories of generations past…and no shortage of eye rolling. But as audiences will discover in Hava Nagila: The Movie, the song is much more than a tale of Jewish kitsch and bad bar mitzvah fashions. It carries with it an entire constellation of history, value and hopes for the future. In its own believe-it-or-not way, Hava Nagila encapsulates the Jewish journey over the past 150 years. It also reveals the power of one song to express and sustain identity, to transmit lessons across generations and to bridge cultural divides and connect us all on a universal level.
Tickets can be pre-ordered online or purchase them at the box office the day of the show. $7 Adults, $6 Circle Cinema Members.
