In a stunning video that includes sweeping footage of the Old City of Jerusalem and the surrounding areas, Israeli superstar Gad Elbaz is the voice of the Jewish people, expressing a longing for the day when Jerusalem will no longer be divided but will be a single united city.
Elbaz is joined by well known Israeli musician Meron Williams and the two walk the streets of the Old City, accompanied in song by Israelis of all ages who are eager to embrace the thriving Jewish communities that have begun to flourish all around the Kotel area.
Titled Bisheariach, the video brings to light the work of the American Friends of Ateret Cohanim which has supported the efforts of Ateret Cohanim in Israel to renew the once thriving communities of the Old Jewish Quarter, today called the Muslim and Christian Quarters. American Friends seeks to strengthen the Jewish presence in these areas by providing for the social, emotional and security needs of those families and students who live in and around the Old City. These Israelis, who have chosen to redeem the holiest city of all, face a daily barrage of violence from their Arab neighbors. Despite the hostility and hatred, these brave families continue to exhibit their desire to live in a united Jerusalem and remain strong.
