Our elder played this song at church last Sabbath:[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UZysDfygzsE]
I was disappointed that I only understood three words of the song:
אם אשכחך, ירושלים
Im eshkachech, Yerushalayim
If I forget you, Jerusalem
And I only semi understood that second word, because the elder read from Psalm 137:
If I forget you, O Jerusalem,
Let my right hand forget its skill!
Psalm 137:5, NKJV
I’m going to learn this song… (Never mind that the queue of songs I’m ‘going to learn’ is getting longer…)
The video is quite a powerful compilation, too. isn’t it? It stirs me, and I’m not Jewish. I can’t imagine what it is like for someone with strong Jewish identity, especially a Zionist.
