Israeli Music Playlists

Music can capture a mood, express complex emotions, and make us feel like we are traveling in space and time. It’s an essential part of creating an immersive educational experience. We offer both general Israeli music playlists to fit different moods, as well as thematic ones designed to complement our educational resources by providing songs that relate to different themes that are being explored. We will continue to add playlists to this collection that are relevant for different holidays or times of the year. Use these songs for your own enrichment or to set the mood in your educational setting, or challenge yourself to create your custom collections of Israeli music!


In times of trouble, music has the power to calm, help heal, and give voice to emotions that can be difficult to express.
Explore this selection of songs, old and new, curated for the uniquely challenging days following the October 7 attacks.
