Here's a super tune we've been playing in local sessions for a while:

Zemer Atik [Old Song]

Od nashuva el nigun atik
Vehazemer yif veye'erav
Od gavia meshumar, nashik, nashik
Alizei einayim ve-leivav

Tovu, tovu ohaleinu
Ki machol hiftsia
Tovu, tovu ohaleinu
Od nashuva el nigun atik

*******

We will return again to an ancient melody
And the song will linger on.
When we raise our glasses together
Our eyes and hearts will be bright.

How good are our tents
Because there's dancing there.
How good are our tents
Still we return to an ancient melody.

My wife had a great time singing and dancing this song in a music group this evening. When she told me about it, I found a very nice YouTube video:

I believe it's an Israeli song fron the 60s, not a way back traditional one. Calling it "Ladino" seems a bit dubious, even though it sounds like some Sephardic songs. (In the klezmer scene it's usually "not one of ours").

Joe's video is nice and straightforward. In most other YouTube videos it seems to be a pretext for dressing up like Isadora Duncan.
