Jerusalem of Gold
 

A short walking tour in Jerusalem, inspired by the song most associated today with Jerusalem.

 

Written a few weeks before the Six Day War, this beautiful song has entered the pantheon of great songs about Jerusalem and is loved by Jews throughout the world. In this song, Naomi Shemer relates to many concepts and issues regarding Jerusalem which appear in Talmudic and other historical sources throughout the generations. The song, which captures a fleeting moment in the history of Jerusalem, also gives us a sense of the eternity of the city.

 

In this 2 hour walking tour we will see the Old City of Jerusalem through the prism of this song. The streets of Jerusalem will give us a deeper understanding of this famous song but more importantly - this song will give us a deeper understanding of Jerusalem.
