|Hine mah tov
||I first learned this song while living on a kibbutz in Israel. Although it is based on Psalm 121, it was often sung by the pioneers of the kibbutz movement, many of whom made aliyah at the close of the 19th century.
||It's a song from the musical movie "Kazablan", a hit in Israel at the 70's. The Moroccan imigrants are called "Kazablan" or "Kaza", and at that time most were of a low social level. The singer Yehoram Gaon plays a Moroccan imigrant that falls in love by a girl of higher social level. As he is a naughty boy, her father doesn't accept the courtship and says that this guy doesn't deserve any respect. Kaza defends himself with the song Kol Hakavod - all respect.
