Jerusalem 1979

  24º Eurovision Song Contest
 Hallelujah (Milk & Honey) - Israel

The Eurovision Song Contest 1979 was the 24th Eurovision Song Contest and was held on March 31, 1979 at the Binyanei Ha’ouama Centre in Jerusalem, Israel. The presenters were Daniel Pe'er and Yardena Arazi. Representing Israel, Gali Atari and Milk and Honey were the winners of this Eurovision with the song, Hallelujah.

This was a second victory in a row for Israel, it was also their second victory in the contest. At one point before the contest Turkey was going to participate but they withdrew. If they had gone ahead they would have appeared eleventh on stage.

In Israel they were very happy to win the contest twice in a row but they would decline to host it again so...

See you in The Hague for the 25th Eurovision Song Contest in 1980
