Hebrew / Israeli Dance Steps and Demos
Mayim Mayim ("water water", or "waters waters")
Mayim Mayim ("water water") is an old Israeli folk dance. After a seven year search water was discovered by members of a kibbutz. As they celebrated on the shores of Galilee the Israelis choreographed steps that represented the motions of the waves on the shore. The word in the Hebrew language for water is Mayim and this step was appropriately named the Mayim Step.

HAVA NAGILA "Let us rejoice"
An Israeli folk song traditionally sung at Jewish celebrations. It is perhaps the first modern Israeli folk song in the Hebrew language that has become a staple of band performers at Jewish weddings and bar/bat mitzvah celebrations.

Hatikvah (The Hope) The Jewish National Anthem
It was written by Naftali Herz Imber (1856-1909), who moved to Palestine in 1882 from Galicia. The melody was arranged by Samuel Cohen, an immigrant from Moldavia, from a musical theme in Smetana's "Moldau" that is partly based on a Scandinavian folk song.
Hatikva expresses the hope of the Jewish people, that they would someday return to the land of their forefathers as prophesied in the Hebrew Bible.
When the State of Israel was established in 1948, Hatikvah was unofficially proclaimed the national anthem. It was officially sanctioned as the national anthem by the Knesset during November 2004, over 120 years after it was first written.
The history of the lyrics and melody, much like Israel, is complex, and told in slightly different ways depending upon the source.
In its current version, Hatikvah incorporates only the first stanza from the original poem. The remaining stanzas focus on the establishment of a sovereign Israeli nation, a hope fulfilled with the founding of the State of Israel. This unique combination is magical. Hatikvah has been sung by Jews in times of horror and joy. The second stanza of the Hatikva recalls the undying hope of Jews through the generation, Jews who lived in other countries and Jews who had remained in Palestine.
