Yerushalayim Shel Zahav - Ofra Haza

Beautiful song, passionate performance, graceful presence and power, commanding a crowd of people (choreographed) to move in the way that they do in this video. Keep watching to see when it happens ...

I'm enjoying the (re)discovery of the inspiring Ofra Haza and finding so many great links to her music and some videos. Let's just call this Ofra Week.

Yaruchiliam shel zahav is Jruselem of gold incase you did not already know that. I put on ear phones to listen. so beautiful. she may be standing in the center of a model of Jeruselam. I was there of course. So beautiful and amazing.
Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

Yes, Lynn, I remember you saying that you spent time there/lived there. I love this song, perhaps best of all I've heard so far - haunting, beautiful and powerful - so I looked up the translated lyrics. "Ofra week" seems to have a life of its own ... (will explain next week).
