The Oranim Zabar Troupe is the highlight of today's Vistas of Israel program, and the group will be singing 3 campfire songs. Campfire singing is as familiar in Israel as it is in the USA, and its popularity will be obvious in the following 3 selections:

1)Al Tira Avdi Yaakov, The Dream Of Jacob, is a lively song about Jacob's dream of the ladder. 2:21 - 5:12

2)Da-vagim, Fishermen, is about the commercial fishermen coming back to port. 5:58 - 8:49

3)Vayiven Uziyahu Migdalim B'Yerushlayim, And Uziyahu Built Towers In Jerusalem. 9:35 - 12:25
