In honor of today being Yom Yerusholayim Ari Goldwag released this version of “Yerusholayim Shel Zahav” composed by Naomi Shemer back in 1967. The original song described the Jewish people’s 2000-year longing to return to Jerusalem; Shemer added a final verse after the Six-Day War to celebrate Jerusalem’s re-unification, after 19 years of Jordanian occupation.
