Longtime readers know that Boney M and I go way back.

For some reason I couldn’t get this song out of my head last night.

The words are from Psalms 137:1:

By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion.

Which continues:

If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning.

Let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth, if I remember thee not;
if I set not Jerusalem above my chiefest joy.

I’ll be in Israel in late July, including at least three days in Jerusalem. I plan to meet some of our Israeli blogger friends as well as a reader who reached out to me.
