The song Jerusalem of Gold, which expressed an unattainable longing, immediately became a symbol of joy and a sense of the incredible miracle witnessed by the residents of the State of Israel during the war. Shemer was in the Sinai when Jerusalem was liberated, and upon hearing the shofar blown at the Western Wall over the radio, on the spot she excitedly added a new verse of joy and hope to the song that she had written.
Although 50 years have passed since then, the song Jerusalem of Gold continues to shine. It lies firmly in the hearts of the Israeli people and has attained the status of an unofficial national anthem, continuing to pull at listeners' heartstrings time and time again.
