You are home.
You’re the land I know,
The soil I love,
The place where I
You’re only a tiny dot on the map,
But you’re my entire world.
You’re a land so small,
Yet so much the subject
Of those who seek to destroy us.
You’re the land
In our hearts
And on our minds,
At every hour
of every day.
You’re the land we’ve cherished
for thousands of years;
the land we dream of,
the land we pray for,
the land we will never forget.
You’re the land we come from,
the land to which we will return.
You’re the land that reminds us
that we’ve strayed far from home,
for far too long;
That no matter how comfortable we may feel,
We just don’t belong
You’re the cobblestone paths
and lush fields
on which my Forefathers journeyed.
The land for which my ancestors fought;
the land that Moses only dreamed of.
You’re the land for which my brothers and sisters
give their lives
each and every day,
You’re the land that nourishes my senses,
And satiates my soul;
From the breathtaking sights,
Glistening blue waters
and fresh air
to the mouthwatering food.
You’re the land that flows with milk and honey,
The land filled with beautiful trees
and sweet luscious fruits;
The land that never stops giving.
You’re the land that our Father
Promised to us.
A spiritual oasis,
For the heart and soul.
You’re the land that brings our age old Torah
You’re the symbol of a beautiful love
between a People
and its Creator,
A nucleus of vibrant Jewish life,
A pillar of the Torah learning that sustains our entire world.
Your’e a center for G-d’s children
from all around the world
because we are
You’re the culmination of nearly 3000 years of Jewish history;
You’re the future of our people.
You’re a brilliant testimony
to the never-ending struggle of our nation,
yet a beacon of hope for a people
yet forever strong–
a people who will continue
to live on.
You’re a symbol of remarkable courage,
You’re a country constantly under attack,
yet one thats never ceases
to give back
to the world
in infinite ways.
You’re the land that makes me
to be a Jew.
You’re a country we’ve built up with
and bare hands;
a land of pure miracles;
a land that never lets me stop believing.
You’re a land of wisdom and scholarship,
Culture and innovation;
a People that never stops achieving.
You’re a society built upon the morals of
and love for one another.
You’re a place of refuge for the Jewish people,
a country that never closes its doors.
You’re home to my family–
near and far:
To my sisters and brothers,
No matter where they are.
Jerusalem, I dream of you
I love you,
I yearn to be with you,
And that someday will be soon–
When I’ll return home.
When I’ll run into your arms,
And sit high upon your shoulders.
When I’ll rejoice in your gateways
And race through your palace doors
To return to our Father,
Like we once knew.
How it feels to truly be back
But my heart is always with You,
And I will be back soon,
With all the dear Children
You once held close.
“Im Eshkachech Yerushalayim,
I will never forget you.
