The words of the background song are from the chapter in the Book of Psalms lamenting the destruction of the first Holy Temple and the city of Jerusalem, By the Rivers of Babylon.

"If I forget thee, O Jerusalem,

May my right hand lose its skill

May my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth

If I do not remember thee

If I do not place Jerusalem

Above my highest joy"

Hebrew captions towards end: And despite it all, we have returned.
