Yom Yerushalayim | Od Yaishvu

  • 0

I was inspired to make this video for Yom Yerushalayim. The song is Od Yaishvu by Mordechai ben David. The words are from Zechariah:

 “.עֹד יֵשְׁבוּ זְקֵנִים וּזְקֵנוֹת בִּרְחֹבוֹת יְרוּשָׁלָ‍ִם וְאִישׁ מִשְׁעַנְתּוֹ בְּיָדוֹ מֵרֹב יָמִים. וּרְחֹבוֹת הָעִיר יִמָּלְאוּ יְלָדִים וִילָדוֹת מְשַׂחֲקִים בִּרְחֹבֹתֶיהָ”

“There shall yet old men and old women sit in the broad places of Jerusalem, every man with his staff in his hand for very age. And the broad places of the city shall be full of boys and girls playing in the broad places thereof.” (Zechariah 8)


Yom Yerushalayim | Od YaishvuFor 2000 years, we dreamed of Jerusalem. In 1967, our dreams came true.

“Od Yaishvu…”

One of my favorite Jewish songs by my favorite Jewish singer, Mordechai ben David. (I actually walked down the aisle at my wedding to this song.)
