From the earliest days of Israel’s War of Independence, popular songs sung by professional artists as well as the fighting troops, have expressed the longing for a peaceful outcome and happy reunions with loved ones.
In this session we shall listen to, sing and read four of these songs composed during the wars of 1948, 1967 and 1973 respectively. We shall monitor the changes and variations in tone and imagery to capture the evasive image of peace, moving from one broken promise to the other as years go by and peace has not yet been reached.
