there are 2 different modes tyically used in klezmer, (though it's not a standard rule), and they're the most common. the hebrew names are "ahava raba" and "misheberakh"

ahava raba = the Greek phrygian mode. it sounds major...or a minor with a lowered 2nd and raised 3rd. like D, Eb, F#, G, A, Bb, C, D
misheberakh = minor. the pattern is W,H, Aug 2nd, H, W, H, W
...minor with a raised 4th and a raised 6th
(the augmented 2nd is what makes this music sound jewish)
