Jerusalem of Gold" (Hebrew: ירושלים של זהב‎, Yerushalayim Shel Zahav) is an Israeli song written by Naomi Shemer. It is also the unofficial national anthem of Israel, often contrasted with the official anthem Hatikva. The original song described the Jewish people's 2,000-year longing to return to Jerusalem; Shemer added a final verse after the Six-Day War to celebrate Jerusalem's re-unification.

Naomi Shemer (born July 13, 1930 on kibbutz Kvutzat Kinneret, died June 26, 2004, Tel Aviv, Israel) was an Israeli songwriter, singer, poet and musician. Her most famous song, "Yerushlayim Shel Zahav" (Jerusalem of Gold), sung by Shuly Nathan became an immediate international hit and a second unofficial Israeli anthem after the city was reunited during the Six Day War in 1967. She received the Israel Prize for Hebrew song in 1983. 형: 모두 표시 중 Naomi Shemer.

Naomi wrote Jerusalem of Gold – in Hebrew, Yerushalayim Shel Zahav – for the Israel Music Festival of 1967, which took place the day after Israel’s 19th Independence Day celebrations. The melody was inspired by a Basque lullaby, but the lyrics describe the Jewish people’s longing for the holy city of Jerusalem. Almost overnight, Jerusalem of Gold became the unofficial hymn of the Israel Defense Forces. Three weeks after the debut of the song at the music festival, the Six Day war broke out. On June 7, IDF paratroopers liberated the Old City of Jerusalem and were the first Jews to approach the Western Wall – Judaism’s holiest place of worship – in 19 years. Phish – the song appears as the last few verses at the end of Demand, the last song on the album Hoist. Phish only sing the first three verses of Jerusalem of Gold, leaving out the last verse.
