Watch: An All-Israel Passover Tribute

Monday, April 22, 2019 |  Israel Today Staff

More than 30 of Israel's most well-loved performers produced a special Passover project with a message of unity and love for the Land of Israel.

The "Shevat Achim VeAchiyot” (brothers and sisters sitting together) production is based on Psalm 133, How good and pleasant when brothers dwell together in unity.

Israel’s Army Radio station helped produce the delightful music video. The song was written by Doron Medley and Idan Raichel. All of the artists involved in the project contributed voluntarily and all profits will be donated to “Sahih,” a program of “Netina Kederech Chayim” (giving as a way of life) society.

The song concludes with a message from Israels President Reuven Rivlin about unity and Israel as the eternal home of the Jewish people.

Enjoy!

Follow along with the song’s lyrics:

70 years on the road I'm traveling and looking
At what was and what will be
And how my soul is still this nation

From catching the sunrise
From Jerusalem with its palaces
From the beaches of the Kinneret
From the parties of Tel Aviv

My father dreamed and prayed
To live in the Land of Israel
Today my children ask me
What is the story of Israel?

This is my home, this is my heart
And I will not leave
Our ancestors, our roots
We are the flowers, the melodies
A tribe of brothers and sisters

The same neighborhood, the same street
Jacob's twelve sons
Brought together after their wanderings
In the place of their longing

A man is his native landscape
His lines in the palm of his hand
Between the prayers and the oaths
The smell of orchard of citrus

And in my mother's eyes
I'll always find my place
The guitar is playing
An ancient tune that is right

This is my home
This is my heart
And I will not leave
Our ancestors, our roots
And we are the flowers, the melodies
A tribe of brothers and sisters

From scratch everything is sewn
Patches, patches of the story
Like two words -they connect
The golden needle of a poet

Here I am from, Here I belong
And every friend of mine is like a brother
You are beating in my heart
I am east and west

This is my home
This is my heart
And I will not leave
Our ancestors, our roots
We are the flowers, the melodies
A tribe of brothers and sisters

This is my home
This is my heart
And I will not leave
Our ancestors, our roots
We are the flowers, the melodies
