Yerushalayim Ashrech - ירושלים אשרך
In honour of Yom Yerushalayim, where we celebrate the city that we will never forget, no matter where in the world we live in.
This set of songs is from the koudam of makam Isbihane. It speaks of the glory of Jerusalem. Many insert the words of Yerushalayim shel Zahav in place of Sura Adoni Sura and it fits perfectly.
First time I heard this song, I fell in love with. It's beautiful and melodious. And believe it or not, it's not a Moroccan song. It's origin is from Yerushalayim (or Egyptian) and can be adapted to many parts of the Tefila.
Of all my years recording piyutim and tefilot, the one recording that I get most comments about is the one of Megilat Esther. I have met people from around the globe who have told me that they learned the Megila from my recording. It makes me proud of what I do and gives me the strength to keep on doing it. Thank you everyone for your support!
Here is the entire Megila read with Moroccan Ta'amim.
