Soundtracks for This Difficult Time


Music has always been an essential component of the commemoration of Yom Hazikaron and the celebration of Yom Ha’atzmaut as well as all times of the year. But this year, in the months since the tragedy of October 7 and the ensuing war, the Israeli music scene has been dominated by songs that cannot escape the shadow of current events. 

There are many powerful songs to listen to this year leading up to Yom Hazikaron and Yom Ha’atzmaut, and beyond. The iCenter has crafted three new playlists that we hope you find meaningful and enjoy. In addition, the following are some of our favorite recent songs, along with their lyrics.
