Jerusalem of Gold (Yerushalaim Shel Zahav), and of sorrow

Here (link to YouTube) is Jerusalem of Gold (Yerushalaim Shel Zahav), a beautiful song closely linked to the Six-day War of 1967, sung in 1998 by the late Ofra Haza (November 19, 1957 – February 23, 2000).

And here is a YouTube link to Hatikvah, Israel's national anthem (fondly remembered). May the peace that has proved so elusive come to Israel and Palestine.
