IM RAK TAGIDI KEN
|IF ONLY YOU WILL SAY YES|
Zocheret ech nahagnu bamechonit hayeshana
Ani avi lach kochav, shoshana
Keshehiganu lamachlef shel tel aviv
Remember how we drove the old car
I will bring you a star and a rose,
We came to the road leading to Tel-Aviv,
|*Sha'ar Hagai is on the way to Jerusalem.
In 1947 Jerusalem was under siege and trucks were driving from Tel Aviv to bring food and other necessities.
When they entered Sha'ar Hagai the Arab forces were waiting on the mountains shooting to stop the convoys.
Many Israelis were killed there and you can still see today the remains of the trucks as you drive up to Jerusalem.
