Host Bob Sherman considers the music of Israel in this 5th episode of the WQXR 50th Anniversary Show. The show begins with an excerpt from a Temple Emmanuel Friday evening worship service, which began airing on WQXR on October 6, 1944. After an excerpt of WQXR host Paul Kwartin as cantor in Frederick Pickett's "Prayer for Peace", Sherman introduces an episode of Avraham Soltes' WQXR show "Music of Israel" from August 1975.

In 1978, Sherman nervously interviewed Teddy Kollek, the Mayor of Jerusalem. He excerpts this interview.
