Lhiot am choshi be artseinou

Erets Tsion ve'Yeroushalaïm

Anthem Lyrics English

Hatikvah

As long as deep

in the heart,

The soul of a

Jew yearns,

And towards

the East

An eye looks to

Zion,

Our hope is not

yet lost,

The hope of two

thousand years,

To be a free

people in our

land,

The land of

Zion and

Jerusalem.
