Since the days of King David, the Jewish people never had an artist like Naomi Shemer, whose music was sang by so many and had such a vast and dramatic effect and influence on the Jewish and Israeli narrative.
Over 1,000 songs were written and composed by Shemer. Many of which tells the story of the State of Israel - from its birth to our days, in happy times and in sad ones.
Her work is still very much ‘alive' and cherished by all.
Naomi Shemer belongs to everyone, in the Jewish State and across the world.
