The traditional ‘Fiddler on the Roof’ style versions of Hava Nagila are not going to be everyone’s cup of tea, so why not choose a more original and fun variety for your Jewish wedding playlist?
Choose a Hava Nagila (or ‘Have-a-tequila’!) that you feel reflects you both or fits the theme of your wedding. Below I’ve sourced everything from a Cuban style version to American Jazz to Beach Party to Techno style renditions. And further down the page there’s some awesome YouTube versions to watch by Bruce Springsteen, Neil Diamond, a Bollywood Hava Nagila, and a few more spectacles!
