Some of My Favorite Yerushalayim Songs

In honor of the 50th anniversary of Yom Yerushalayim, here are some of my favorite Yerushalayim songs in no particular order.

I may add to the playlist if I find more.



I see that Kikar had the same idea and picked its list - some of the same songs and some new ones.  Thanks for reminding me about שבחי ירושלים, which I added.

Rav Yaak, thank you for this. The music does me good.

I do wonder, however, whether Sepharadim sing Yom Yerushalayim songs? There must be something!

Well, at least the last song is a sepharadi one.

I must have missed that one. Sorry.

I have to admit, however, that my favorite out of this set (and I liked a lot of them!) is R' Carlebach's Im Eshkakhech. I actually had a personal epiphany (I know, I'm not allowed, I'm Jewish ;) ) because of this song today.

Thank you again!

BTW, my husband and I began attending a Moroccan beit-knesset recently - this is our original nusah because our first real LOR on our teshuva path was Moroccai.

See my update. I can't believe I forgot שבחי ירושלים!
