AO6 Term 3 Folksongs

Posted by Jeanne

Remember singing this one at school, Ruby?



If anyone could help me with a couple of other kid friendly Israeli/Jewish folksongs, I'd appreciate it. A Psalm sung in Hebrew with karaoke style lyrics would be good too.

This one might be good, but I need a translation first!! Tumbalalaika, in particular is the sort of thing I am looking for!

 

In the meantime we'll be learning Hava Nagila!

Oi! Yes I do! No idea what it means though :-)

If you want something really easy in Hebrew, how about Hevenu Shalom Aleichem? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UwYuFqj6MZA

Or Tzena Tzena Tzena...maybe the English version though? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QZ5v651bQ1o

I love Hava Nagila! I don't know any other Jewish songs, but I do love Fiddler on the Roof - Jem might enjoy that?

All new songs to me!!

Philippians 4:8 said...

What about Dayenu? Its a passover song (from what I know). Roughly means "it would have been enough." The song recalls God's provisions for his people and how each one "would have been enough." It's fun to sing. I can't look right now, but I do remember finding some YouTube videos of it quite easily.

Also--forgot about Chirribim. Here are some lyrics http://www.hebrewsongs.com/song-chiribim.htm . The chorus is easy to sing. (Interesting that the translator lives in Melbourne!)

I'd love you to leave me a message. Tell me what you like - and what you don't. Just remember that this is what we do in our family - it doesn't have to be what you do in yours...
