I Am Hava
A Song's Story of Love, Hope & Joy
Experience the story of the world’s most famous Jewish song, as told by the song herself.
In her spare, poetic text, Freda Lewkowicz has personified the song of Hava Nagila and made her the narrator of her own story, known simply as “Hava.” Renowned Indian-American Jewish illustrator Siona Benjamin, who is known for her blue characters, draws Hava as a young blue girl in a sari. Follow Hava as she spreads joy and hope throughout the world.
