Looking for earliest source/origin of:

Shalom, chaverim, shalom chaverim,
Shalom, shalom
L'hit ra ot, l'hit ra ot,
Shalom, shalom.


Thanks!
Allison

Well, the Weavers recorded it back in the dark ages. I don't think its "liturgical", but I'm not sure how old the Hebrew is. I was once told it was a Habonim (Labor Zionist Youth) song. Not much help, I know.

I don't ever recall singing it in kindergarten.

Thanks, Volgadon- I did see that site, but it looks like an updated composed arrangement of the song.

Every single source I've checked says either "traditional Hebrew song" or "traditional Israeli song". Well, I figured that out, but having sung this song for over 30 years, I'd love to know more of the source!


BTW, it sounds wonderful as a harmony to Jean Ritchie's Peace Round (caution: the music starts playing when the page comes up!)

I thought that the site gave the author's name. Best I could find.

Also fun to do with this: if you time it right, you can sing it along with Wade In The Water, and also a sweet little Arabic verse whose name I forget (OK, Unitarians: it's in the hymnal somewhere.)

I love the mix.

We sing this at our church's Last Supper "re-enactment" in Holy Week. Don't know its origins, though.

The Spinners sang it quite a lot at their gigs. Probably recorded it too. You could always ask Hughie or Mick Groves at his web site at

Dani, tell me more about the sweet little Arabic verse- I wrote one several years ago to go with these songs, so I'm wondering...

It's been so long since I saw/sang it. It's in the Unitarian Universalist hymnal, which I had one of until 48 hours ago. DARN!

... anyone?

Dani
