Blue Stars’ sixth-place show started with the corps entering the field while facing backward during the start of a medley of three traditional Jewish folk songs. “Shema” is the basic principle of Jewish belief, a prayer recited twice a day by adult Jewish males, proclaiming the faith of their people in God. “Hatikvah (The Hope)” was the unofficial national anthem of Israel until it became official in 2004, words written in 1878 by a Jewish poet in what today is Ukraine and music derived from a 17th Century Italian song that became popular throughout much of Europe.
