The Heart of the IDF

Art is a tremendous medium for communication, and I have yet to see anything better convey the heart of the Jewish army than the combination of images and music in the clip that follows.

Though most attention is payed to the hands, which are “the hands of Eisov”, what’s critical is the heart: the voice of Ya’acov.

The chorus of the song, rendered in English, is,

We are believers, children of believers; we have no one upon whom to rely; except for our father–our father in heaven.

The most striking image is 1.15 minutes in; the wall is the Eternal Western Wall; The men in green are our soldiers.
