Old-time Israeli songs are available on the Web. In honor of this week’s celebration of Israel’s 55th Independence Day, the classic tunes can be heard at http://jnul.huji.ac.il. The posting of the songs is part of a project sponsored by the Jewish National and University Library at Jerusalem’s Hebrew University.
