Ron Weinreich has released a new song and music video in celebration of Jerusalem Day.
Weinreich, who was born in Israel and raised on Long Island, New York, was severely injured during the Second Lebanon War. He has since been confined to a wheelchair, but remains outspoken about his love for his homeland.
His latest work, entitled Tribute to Jerusalem of Gold, combines both Hebrew and English, and brings together Naomi Shemer's beloved song, Biblical verses and his own lyrics.
Weinreich has a life-long love of music, and has spent the past few years working to make the most of his singing career. He appeared on Kochav Nolad (the Israeli version of American Idol) in 2011, and his song Love is One reached the final round of the 2013 Eurovision selection competition.
