  Naomi Shemer - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
Naomi Shemer was born and raised in Kvutsat Kinneret, a kibbutz on the shore of Sea of Galilee, of which her parents were founders.
Her most famous song of this vein is "Yerushalayim shel zahav" ("Jerusalem of gold").
In 1968 an Israeli Member of Parliament presented a bill to the Knesset speaker, nominating this song for the anthem of Israel; the nomination was ultimately rejected, but this incident speaks to the power of Shemer's songs.

 Jerusalem of Gold - The Career of a Song
Shemer's four colleagues were intimidated and refused to comply with the request to compose a song on the proposed theme.[2] She, too, was taken aback at the prospect, but nevertheless agreed.
The song continued to arouse political controversy, and has continued to do so until today.[26] Ironically, it was Knesset member Uri Avneri who in 1967 tabled a bill to make "Jerusalem of Gold" the national anthem, in replacement of "ha-Tikvah".[27] Avneri met with her in a café, and attempted to explain to her its importance.

Perhaps best known for her song "Jerusalem of Gold," or "Yerushalayim Shel Zahav," a paean to Israel’s capital written shortly before Jerusalem’s Old City was captured by the Israelis in the 1967 Six-Day War, Shemer penned and performed countless songs that captured the national mood and drew on her kibbutz upbringing.
Shemer was born in 1930 in Kibbutz Kinneret.
She studied at music schools in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, but Shemer returned to her kibbutz roots in the army, spending her years of compulsory military service as a musical coordinator for shows put on by the Nahal Corps at new settlements and kibbutzim around the country.

This song begins with scenes from the Mass at St. Stefansdom in Vienna on the Feast of St. Stephen (December 26th).
The song was an instant hit at its debut in the 1967 Israel Song Festival and received the first prize.
Most definitely, the people imprisoned at Auschwitz never knew "Yerushalayim Shel Zahav." Nevertheless, I have included the song because it would have had been in the hearts and aspirations of many Jews in those harsh and inhumane conditions to see the Jerusalem of Gold--a Jerusalem they can call their home.

 Bloghead: Gold-plated Jerusalem?
The report, originally in Ha'aretz but now everywhere, that Israeli national icon Naomi Shemer left a letter for after her death admitting that she 'lifted' the tune for Yerushalayim Shel Zahav (Jerusalem of Gold) from a Basque lullaby has provoked strong reactions.
No, it sounds to me like Shemer, being the straight, honorable woman everyone always believed she was, had simply been plagued by guilt over the mere possibility she could have done something wrong and chose to clear her conscience with this letter.
What I find interesting, however, is the reaction of most commentators on YNet, NRG etc. who almost unanimously ask, 'Who cares?' if she did draw inspiration from another song, and continue to defend Shemer's status (and the song's status) as national icon.
