Notes Songs Of The Pioneers

Israel is an ancient land. Jewish pioneers from around the world began to return to rebuild the country less than a hundred years ago. These pioneers developed Israel as a modern country and also gave Israel some of its best loved songs. The songs on this program were recorded at an annual celebration that honored the Pioneers of Israel.
