Continuing our sporadic series of Jewish traces that show up where we would least expect them, we found a another example "down under."
The location: a suburb of Melbourne, Australia. The performers: the Nadezhda Russian Choir. What do you expect them to sing? What else? A medley of Jewish folk songs. Of course!
In a five minute burst of song, the choir sings
Hevenu Shalom Aleichem
Chiri Biri Bom
A song that we don't recognize (Can you identify it?)
Bei Mir Bist du Schein
(Coming tomorrow: Lots of jokes to start the week)
