Harold Arlen (February 15, 1905)

Harold Arlen wrote “Over the Rainbow.” From Tablet Magazine:
"Call that land Oz, if you’d like. Or call it Israel. (For that matter, call it Miami Beach or Shaker Heights or the Upper West Side.) Anyway you slice it, the story “Over the Rainbow” tells is the oldest Jewish story of them all: "There’s no place like home."
