The Museum of Jewish Heritage of New York – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust has invited Ray Van Eng to have this video included in the Hava Nagila Exhibit. The video is on view from Sep 13, 2012 to May 13, 2013.

It is Bollywood in Vancouver at the Downtown Bhangra 2011 VIBC City of Bhangra Festival 2011. For the first time ever, the Jewish Community Centre and Surrey India Arts worked on creating a Punjabi-Israel fusion song and dance number.

The tune used in the soundtrack was ‘Hava Nagila’ (הבה נגילה), a popular Jewish-Ukrainian Hebrew folk song meaning let’s rejoice that had become a stable band performance in Jewish weddings and Bar/Bat Mitzvahs.

This unique presentation that combined the two diverse cultures was performed at the Vancouver Art Gallery grounds on May 13, 2011. A truly one-of-a-kind Bollywood in Vancouver experience. Bring on Downtown Bhangra 2012!!
