Yael Satat

A Song of Praise – 60 to Israel

This is the 60th birthday for Israel as State

Therefore, we are joyous and we all celebrate!

If you were born here – this homeland is for you

And Israel is the place for every single Jew

 

The Hebrew language is by all of us shared

Whether a local or an arrival from abroad

The language with love embraces the whole nation

The dialect the Tanach then becomes a revelation

 

Your settlers and guests give you, Israel – a blessing:

So that your light shall forever be shining!

That you shall exist for all eternity

Providing us a homeland with security.
