Jerusalem of Gold

Here is the beautiful song,
'Jerusalem of Gold, sung in Hebrew
with English subtitles, by the famous Israeli singer, Ofra Hazar.

From the Old Testament:

"If I forget thee oh Jerusalem, let my right hand forget its cunning.
Let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth if I prefer thee not above
my chiefest joys."

Having just returned from Jerusalem this manipulation is especially meaningful to me. The only thing I painted are the windows and the moon.



  1. Wow! I think this is gorgeous. It's a prayer icon type of picture. You look at it and think Jerusalem and you don't see the city so much as you see the spirit of God here. Very nice.

  2. You always have the right words for the right things, at the right moment Doug. :) Thanks

  3. Thank you freebird. For me, Jerusalem has so many wonderful memories. My wife was born in Jerusalem, I met her there, and my first Israeli grandchild was born there.

    Nice to see you again, Alex. Thank you for your kind words. I hope that things are going well for you, and that you have a wonderful week.
