Ari Goldwag "BiYerushalayim"

Ari Goldwag proudly presents a brand new single - BiYerushalayim. The song brings the Posuk form Yeshayahu to life which speaks of the return of those lost in Assyria and Egypt who make their way to the Holy Mountain - the Temple Mount, in order to bow to Hashem in Jerusalem. Filmed in Jerusalem, with special locations pointed out by R' Yehuda Levi, who also took part in the filming, the song and video contains breathtaking footage of scenes of the Holy Mountain itself, both in its current state, and also a glimpse of how it looked in the times of the Second Temple, nearly 2000 years ago.

The video also includes footage (before and after the song) from Ari's presentation of the song to the Yanuka, Rav Shlomo Yehuda Bari, who is not only known for his incredible erudition in the breadth and depth of the Torah, but is also a gifted musician. Ari had asked for a blessing from the Yanuka for inspired songs, and in the days that followed, composed over 30 new melodies. He came back to the Yanuka with this song - BiYerushalayim - and presented it to the Yanuka. As can be seen from the film itself, Rav Bari enjoyed the song, and blessed it with success.

Song Composed & Arranged by Ari Goldwag
