17th February 2015: Ofra Haza – Im Nin’Alu

Language – Hebrew

Translation – If the doors are locked / If the gates are closed

I remember this record coming out when I was young.  The poppier / remixed version, anyway, which was an exciting and surprising hit in the UK.  I really like this more stripped down version. Interestingly, this is apparently the first time it was sung on TV in Israel despite being a very popular poem / song that is often sung at weddings.

Im nin’alu daltei n’divim daltei marom lo nin’alu – Even if the gates of the rich are closed, the gates of heaven will never be closed.
