Menachem Herman: Sweet Home Jerusalem

This is, of course, a religious Jewish take on Sweet Home Alabama, a 1974 song by the American rock band, Lynyrd Skynyrd. Songs about geography speak about a love for a place, both its sweetness and its sourness, its good and bad, often informed by history, both ancient and modern as to its meaning today. Menachem Herman is a self-described Canadian–born Israeli, Hasidic rock guitar player. This song was recorded and released in 2009.
