Thread Name: Lyr Add: Hinei Ma Tov
Subject: RE: Hinei Ma Tov - Lyric Addition
Hey, "Milan" is a lot closer to the original than "Mailand," isn't it? I won't say anything about "Florence" and "Munich."
So, what's a semitist? - a guy who studies Jewish semantics? I gather it's somebody who studies Semitic languages.

Now, I have to say I learned "Hine Ma Tov" and "Hava Nagila" from that infamous Semitist, Harry Belafonte - so what do I know???
