About “New Spirit”

  • Sakharov is using traditional “Jerusalem language” to talk about Tel Aviv. Would you say Tel Aviv offers a “new spirit”?
  • Do you think that Israel is a “new spirit” in your Jewish life?

  •  The phrase in this song “shvuya bachaloma/ captive of her own dream” was first used by Naomi Shemer in her famous “Jerusalem of Gold”. Here the words are appropriated to refer  to Tel Aviv.
    • In your opinion, is Israel just a dream or is it all too real?
