Material inédito, a 40 años de su muerte: John Lennon cantando en hebreo

Para conmemorar los 40 años deel asesinato de John Lennon, la televisión israelí emitió un clip de 1969 del Beatle cantando una canción hebrea. Se trata de «Oath to Jerusalem» («Juramento a Jerusalén»), escrita por Akiva Nof, periodista, compositor y más tarde miembro de la Knesset israelí, quien se la enseñó a Lennon en una entrevista.

Lennon, quien estaba en Ámsterdam con su esposa Yoko Ono, cantó dos líneas de la canción, después de presentarla como «la voz de Lennon hablando con la Voz de Israel”.

Nof, recordando la entrevista, le dijo a Canal 12 que estaba trabajando como corresponsal de Radio Israel en ese momento. Estaba en Ámsterdam y llamó a la puerta de la habitación del hotel de John Lennon para pedir una entrevista.

Un miembro de la comitiva del cantante le negó la solicitud, pero cuando estaba por cerrar la puerta en su cara, Lennon gritó desde adentro: «Que entre la Voz de Israel».

Se encontró solo con Lennon en la habitación: “Fue más que una entrevista; fue una discusión de media hora. Mi impresión fue que simplemente quería hablar».

En un momento  “le pregunté si conocía alguna canción israelí y me respondió: ‘Sólo Hava Nagila, ja, ja, ja’. Así que le pregunté si me dejaría enseñarle dos versos de una canción mía que en ese momento cantaba el coro rabínico del ejército israelí. Él dijo que sí».

“Escribí las palabras para él en letras latinas, le enseñé la melodía en un instante, y cantó. ¿Qué fue lo que cantó? ‘Jerusalén, todos hemos jurado por la eternidad, no te abandonaremos de aquí y para siempre’”, reveló el periodista.
