Dry Bones cartoon,Hatikva, Imbar, Israel,Zionists, Zionism, series,Continuing the Zionists series:
Naftali Imbar was an itinerant poet whose visionary poem HaTikva (the Hope) was set to music to become Israel's National Anthem.

Kol od ba’le’vav p’nima,
Nefesh yehudi ho’miyah.
U’lefa-atei mizrach kadimah,
Ayin le’Tziyyon tzofiyah.
Od lo avda tikva-teinu,
Ha’tikvah bat sh’not al-payim
Lih-yot am chofshi b’ar-tzeinu
Eretz Tziyyon v’Yerushalayim.

As long as within our hearts
The Jewish soul sings,
As long as forward to the East
To Zion, looks the eye –
Our hope is not yet lost,
It is two thousand years old,
To be a free people in our land
The land of Zion and Jerusalem.
