Notes Songs Of Israel: Nehama Hendel

Nehama Hendel, one of Israel's foremost folk singers, is interviewed on this broadcast. Ms. Hendel studied to be an actress but began singing as part of a entertainment group during her service in the military. When her service was completed she continued her acting studies in Paris. She soon realized, however, that singing suited her better. She has become known as the Ambassador of Israeli Folk Music.
