2) David , composed by M. Zaira and Dovid Melech Yisrael. 3:57 - 6:12

3) Hafin Jan. This song uses the symbolism of a ceremonial coffee pot that is passed around campfires to express the rekindling of hope and strength by the new Israeli settlers. 6:40 - 8:21

4) Lech Lamidbar (To The Desert) is an appeal to the pioneers to return to the desert to make the land suitable for farming. 8:45 - 10:21

5)Zot Haderech L�eilat (This Is The Road To Eilat), is a song of praise to the city of Eilat. Situated at the southern-most tip of Israel, it is surrounded by potentially dangerous enemies. 11:01 - 13:13
