Of course this song is based on Psalm XXIII It has become quite famous in Italy (also with a Disco-remix!) after a Roberto Faenza's movie.."Jona che visse nel ventre della balena" (Jona who lived in the belly of the whale). The plot of the movie is based on the autobiographical novel "Childhood years" by the Dutch writer Jona Obersky. It has been the first time (after the case of HAVA NAGILA) that a Hebrew song has become really famous among the genral populatiion in Italy. Some neo-fascist antisemitical groups in Rome have used this song (changing the words) to mock the Jews during Soccer Games. Gam Gam is also the name of a Kosher Restaurant run by a Lubavitcher Comgregation in the old ex-ghetto of Venice. In the Faenza's movie Jewish children sang this song in a school in Amsterdam. The version of the movie has been sung by a French Jewish Cildren Choir.."Les Chivatim".
