Notes Ron Eliran began his entertainment career in the Kibbutz where he lived as a child. During the Sinai campaign in 1957, a very young Ron Eliran sang and played his guitar in border settlements and army posts. During and after the 1967 war, he served in the army entertaining troops and singing Sharm-a-Sheich which became a national sensation. This album salutes Israel, the country of Eliran's birth, with songs such as Ten Lashir, Shehayom Yavo, and Ani Mavtiach Lach.
