Yes, we know it's Monday and you're expecting a Joke to Start the Week, but today is Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, so we're deferring our joke of the week to tomorrow, Tuesday.
But we can't let a day go without posting something relevant to the day that will be uplifting. Hatikva, Israel's national anthem, is a fixture in Holocaust remembrance ceremonies today in Israel and around the world.
There aren't many different versions of Hatikva, but Israeli-born violinist, singer/songwriter Michael Greilsammer has come up with a unique version that blends the traditional melody with the main theme of the award-winning HBO fantasy series. Game of Thrones.
Greilsammer has been called a revolutionary musical phenomenon by the world press.
The child of French immigrant parents and named a child prodigy at the age of five, Michael’s unique music blends Irish, Reggae and Rock flavors to create a magical sound.
We'll be back tomorrow with a Joke to Start the week.
