The festival this year will deal with the gap between loyalty as an emotion and the oath as an action, as a language, and as an action through language.
"I believe” – Sha’ul Tchernichovsky's canonical poem, written in the late 19th century in Russia – Expressed the poet's Social –humanistic and Zionistic wishes for personal, social and national freedom.
The song was adopted by the Zaionist – Socialist movement, and became a kind of an anthem and also – a popular Lullaby song.
Current validity of the text is examined here by translating it from Hebrew to Arabic and changing the speaker’s identity from a Jewish man to a Palestinian woman.
