The Israeli Song Festival is an annual event and is one of the many "goings on" surrounding Israel's Independence Day.

There are 4 selections on today's Vistas of Israel program:

1) A'yeled Ta'hem, Beautiful Doe, sung by Arik Einstein, was the winning song in the previous year's Festival. 0:55 - 5:01
