In the 1930s and 40’s Jewish dancing was in vogue. After the formation of the state of Israel a new kind of dancing became very popular, and Eastern European Jewish dancing almost disappeared. "Hava Nagila" is one dance that spans both eras. In this session, we will learn and do both kinds of dances and in that way help revive Jewish dancing.
