Jewish Traces in Unexpected Places: A Rousing Medley of Hebrew Songs by Texas Church Choir


Back in November 2009, when Jewish Humor Central was just getting started and we had just a handful of subscribers, we posted a spirited version of Hava Nagila performed by the Cornerstone Orchestra and Choir. 

The musicians are members of Christians United for Israel (CUFI), based in San Antonio, Texas, home of Pastor John Hagee's Cornerstone Church

CUFI has held Nights to Honor Israel in cities all across America since February 2006. The evenings attract thousands of Christians who rally to support Israel and contribute millions of dollars every year to Israeli charities.
Today we found the complete medley of Hebrew songs that ended with the rendition of Hava Nagila. Here is a medley that's unlike any you've heard. Besides Hava Nagila, it includes Mayim Mayim, Eleh Chomdo Libi, David Melech Yisrael, Nigun Atik, and Hevenu Shalom Aleichem.

  2. CUFI is not a friend of the Jewish people. They give us money, yes, but they only support us because of their Fundamentalist Christian millenialist beliefs. In order for their messiah to come 9or return), there has to be a return of all Jews to Israel, where we will be offered the choice of conversion to Christianity or eternal damnation. Eventually, they are going to get very upset with us.. check out the history of Martin Luther and the Jews. (NOT MLK, Jr.)
