Shirat Machar’s “Shir BaBoker BaBoker” (Song of the Morning) is an adaptation of Amir Gilboa’s 1953 poem celebrating the founding of the state of Israel a few years earlier. The melody was composed by Shlomo Artzi in the 1970’s and was revived as a protest song during the 2011 social justice protests. Around the same time, the Groovatron recorded a cover which combined the cover of the song with recitations from Israel’s Declaration of Independence. These questions are meant to guide discussion around Shirat Machar’s video.

The Masorti Movement is committed to a pluralistic, egalitarian, and democratic vision of Zionism. Masorti represents a “third” way. Not secular Judaism. Not ultra-Orthodoxy. But a Jewish life that integrates secular beliefs. Halakhah with inclusion and egalitarianism. Tradition that recognizes the realities of today’s world. Masorti engages tens of thousands of Israelis each year, young and old, native born as well as olim from around the globe.
