In honor of Memorial Day on Wednesday and Independence Day on Thursday, the a cappella group Kippalive has released an uplifting song on the miraculous return of the Jewish people to their ancestral homeland of Israel.

The song, which features lyrics written by Kippalive to the tune of "500 Miles" by Hedy West, is entitled "We Are Home."

"On Memorial Day we honor and remember those who fell in battle for the state of Israel and its daily existence," Kippalive told Arutz Sheva.

"Their sacrifice ensures the security of our land and enables Jews from around the world to make aliyah if they only desire to do so."

Explaining the video, the group said, "Kippalive has new olim (immigrants - ed.), veteran olim and also sabras. This is their story."
