After 41 Years: Shulamit Livnat's Lost Song on Samaria | Israel today


Last song of farewell: A song by "Singer of the Underground" is found in a hotel in Samaria • Her daughter Limor said: "I grew up inspired by the values ​​of the Land of Israel" • Yossi Dagan: "An exciting greeting from the founding generation"

Exciting discovery:

While one of the managers of the Eshel Hashomron Hotel in Ariel was arranging one of the hotel's warehouses, he suddenly discovered yellowing pages.

On the pages is a song composed by underground singer Shulamit Livnat, and written by her husband Azriel Livnat.

This, apparently, in honor of the Independence Day celebrations in Samaria 41 years ago in 1980.

For an unknown reason, the song was not eventually played at the festivities and remained all these years in the drawers at the Eshel Hashomron Hotel.

The song talks about a vision for Samaria and is written in it, among other things:

"More flesh will come to the mountains of Samaria,

and from the lowlands they will ascend with a rabbi,

plant vineyards with drums and dance,

and restore the string of houses."

"Samaria belongs to all of us": the lost song of the late Shulamit Livnat is revealed

Lyrics: Shulamit Livnat

Composer: Shulamit Livnat and Nir Tene

Performer: Ariel Zilber

The yellowing pages also contained the melody for the song, but parts of it were missing.

The director of Eshel Hashomron located the musician who accompanied the late Shulamit Livnat, Nir Tene, and asked him to try to recreate the missing parts of the melody. The two turned to Ariel Zilber and asked him to perform the song, and he gladly complied.

Shulamit's daughter, Limor, said: "I was very excited when Menachem Gilboa showed me less than a year ago the lyrics written by my late father, a man from Greater Israel, and Herut fighter Israel Azriel (Uzi) Livnat, and composed by my mother, the underground singer, Shulamit Livnat.

"My brother Noam, and I, grew up at home on the values ​​of the Land of Israel, the tradition of Israel and the people of Israel, and in my youth, even before I joined the Herut movement, I joined the Movement for the Greater Land of Israel.

"All of us, the whole family, lovers of the whole country, and proud of our parents, from whom we drew all our love and connection to this good country."

The head of the Samaria Council, Yossi Dagan, one of the first people to hear the performance, said: "It is a privilege that the people of Eretz Israel and two fighters of the underground, who founded the state, wrote a song about Samaria so many years ago. And especially dear Meshulamit, the underground singer. "

Tuvia Gelbard, CEO of Eshel Hashomron, added: "The discovery moved us greatly and reminded us of the forgotten days of Independence Day, in which more than 10,000 people visited Samaria."

Ariel Zilber: "I was very happy to do it and make Samaria happy."
