Earth Day

​April 22 is Earth Day – all over the world people celebrate the planet and pause to consider its plight. In this spirit, we bring you the song "HaOlam Agol VePatuach". This was originally a song of praise for Stalin, to music by the composer Lev (Levko) Ravutsky. In 1951, the poet Natan Yonatan composed a Hebrew version of the existing Soviet number, transforming it into a march that urges us to go forth into a beautiful world.
