Jerusalem of Gold/Yerushalayim Shel Zahav

June 02, 2016

The Mizrachi World Movement has partnered with the dynamic and renowned Chazan Netanel Hershtik and leading musicians and music directors in Israel to produce a unique music video of Naomi Shemer’s legendary “Yerushalyim Shel Zahav”.

This was produced in honor of the 49th anniversary of the celebration of Yom Yerushalayim as we prepared to enter the 50th year since of the re-unification of our Holy City.

This video clip with powerful and stirring visuals tells the story of a young girl who gets separated from her parents and gets lost in the Muslim and Christian quarters of the Old City eventually finding her parents at the Western Wall. It is a metaphor of the Jewish people’s trials and tribulations in exile until finally returning to our ultimate spiritual home – Jerusalem.
