A special and exciting lecture about Jerusalem,
the capital of Israel, to mark the anniversary of its liberation.
In this lecture, we will distinguish between songs about Jerusalem
written from the time of the establishment of the State of Israel (1948)
until the Six-Day War (1967)
and those written after the war and the city’s reunification.
We will listen to the city’s anthems:
Jerusalem of Gold and Rejoice about Jerusalem (Sisu et Yerushalayim),
We’ll talk about the city’s holy sites (the Western Wall)
and we’ll experience through the songs the city’s most influential figures,
for example Sir Moses Montefiore.
