In Jerusalem, the eternal capital of the Jewish people, Israel’s national anthem was played on restored violins owned by Jews during the Holocaust.
Israel’s national anthem, Hatikvah, was written more than 50 years before the birth of the Jewish state.
Hatikvah – Hebrew for “The Hope” – refers to the 2,000-year-old dream of the Jewish People to return to the Land of Israel. It has served as a source of inspiration for Jews who have found themselves in the most dire of circumstances. During the darkest hours of the Holocaust, Jews defied their tormentors by singing the song’s powerful lyrics.
In this performance, which took place in Jerusalem, the eternal capital of the Jewish people, Israel’s national anthem of hope and peace was played on restored violins that were owned by Jews during the Holocaust.
