Naomi Shemer is widely considered to be the First Lady of Israeli Song. In writing and singing "Jerusalem of Gold," she succeeded in connecting Jews to their roots, and in balancing the tension between past and present. She linked the ordinary with the festive, the countryside with the city and the history of Israel between war and peace. Ten years after her death, let us bring her back to life as we go over her words and melodies, and let's discover the treasure she left for us all.

Elisheva Edelson has been a Jewish Educator in Mexico City and for the last 12 years in San Diego. Elisheva created the program "7 Decades of Israeli music—Connecting with Israel through Song."
