“If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning. If I do not remember thee, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth; if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy.” (Psalm 137)

This is the prayer Jews have been reciting for 2,000 years, never giving up hope that one day they will return to their ancient land and eternal capital of Jerusalem.

The Jewish historical connection to Jerusalem is undeniable – despite the fact that it was absurdly rejected Thursday by a UN resolution initiated by the Palestinians.

Watch this beautiful musical tribute to the Holy City of Jerusalem, with the words of Psalm 137 sung by Gad Elbaz, one of Israel’s top performers.
