'Song Of

allies on Israel's
behalf since
Palestinian terror
kicked into high
gear more than 31 months ago
have turned the communal
spotlight on "Halvah," the
national anthem of the Jewish
But it's uncomfortably clear
when the song opens Jewish
events that many from the
younger generations hum along
but don't know the words to
this uplifting melody, vvhich has
united the Jewish people for
some 100 years.
Yom HaAtzmaut, Israel
Independence Day, falls on lyar
5 — May 7 this year.
In celebration of that special
day it the history of our people,
and to make it easy for Jews of
all ages to learn the words to this
expression of eternal hope that
Israel will live as a free nation in
the land of Zion, the Detroit
Jewish News presents this
"Hatikvah" keepsake against a
Star of David backdrop.
The national anthem stands
with the Israeli flag as instantly
identifiable badges of honor in
support of the one democracy in
the Middle East.
May we pray for and work
toward a lasting peace in this
embattled region.

As long as the Jewish spirit is yearning
deep in the heart,
With our eyes turned toward the east,
looking toward Zion,
Then our hope — the 2,000-year-old hope
will not be lost:
To be a free people in our land,
the land of Zion and Jerusalem.

Kol od balevav, penimak'
Nefesh Yehudi homiyah
Ulfaatey mizrach kadimah
Ayin l'tzion tzofiyah.
Oal to avdah tikvatenu
Hatikvah bat shnot alpayim
Lehiyot am chofihi, Vartzenu
Eretz tzion v'Yerushalayim.

Words by Naftali Herz Imber
