Shiri Maymon Hasheket Shenish'ar
"HaSheket SheNish'ar" (Hebrew: השקט שנשאר, lit. The Silence that Remains) was the Israeli entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 2005, performed in Hebrew and English by Shiri Maimon. The song was written by Eyal Shahar and Pini Aharonbayev and Ben Green.
The Israeli pre-selection took place in Jerusalem in March 2005. Among 14 songs, Maimon's song "HaSheket SheNish'ar" was chosen by the television viewing audience via televoting, combined with 5 juries' voting. With 116 points, Maimon was announced as the official Israeli representative for the Eurovision Song Contest 2005 in Kiev. The song is classified as a power ballad.
The song deals with Maimon's realisation that her lover has been unfaithful and her decision to leave him as a result. She seems unsure about what to do next and muses on "the silence that remains".
