|To celebrate Easter 2005, the Gaithers and their extended clan of Homecoming Friends journeyed to the Holy Land for a spate of inspired performances. JERUSALEM, one of two records (along with ISRAEL HOMECOMING) documenting these outings, opens with a flourish on the exotic title track by the Hoppers. While Guy Penrod returns the affair to a more reserved note on "Resurrection," the dominant spirit of the record is one of playful jubilation. Accordions dance about on Bekki Smith's joyful "The Mighty One of Israel," while Mark Lowry and the Isaacs goof on the mixture of Hebrew and American Southern cultures on the novelty "Shalom Y'all."
