My Jerusalem
​​​Marking three years since the death of composer and musician Toni Helfman, his family has released the song "Iri Yerushalayim" (My Jerusalem), with lyrics by Shulamit Magen. The song was originally written for the 1996 Jerusalem Day ceremony at Safra Square. On that occasion, it was performed by students from the capital's Beit Chinuch high school, in the presence of former mayor Ehud Olmert. Now, 17 years after that premiere performance, the song has been recorded by vocalist Dorit Farkash, with arrangement and musical direction by Rami Harel.
