This page contains a translation into English of the lyrics to the beautiful Israeli song "Yerushalayim Shel Zahav". Also included is a transliteration of the Hebrew lyrics into the Roman alphabet so you can sing along if you like.

The song was composed in 1967 for the Israel Song Festival. The song has attracted controversy because of its references to the fact that the city of Jerusalem was (at the time it was composed) a divided city. A month after the song was performed at the festival, Israeli forces captured the Old City. The song has taken on a great deal of importance for the Israeli people. Some even regard it as the second national anthem, after "ha-Tikvah".

This song has appeared on at least one music album intended for belly dancers, under the song title "Orshilim". Dancers are advised to use extreme caution when deciding whether to dance to this song, because of its political nature and its iconic status with the Israeli people. I have included this translation here on my web site as a warning for dancers who may find it on a CD and feel tempted to use it without knowing what the lyrics are about.
