"Heute in Jerusalem" ("Today in Jerusalem") was the Austrian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1979, performed in German by jazz singer Christina Simon.

The song was performed eighteenth on the night, following the United Kingdom's Black Lace with "Mary Ann" and preceding Spain's Betty Missiego with "Su canción". At the close of voting, it had received 5 points, placing 18th (equal last) in a field of 19.

The song has music by Peter Wolf and lyrics by André Heller.[1] It is a ballad with influences from contemporary jazz and blues, about the hope of "peace in Jerusalem", bringing "sense against the nonsense". The Contest took place on 31 March 1979 in central Jerusalem, at the Binyanei HaUma Convention Center, just five days after the historic signing of the Egyptian–Israeli Peace Treaty.

The song was succeeded as Austrian representative in the 1980 contest by Blue Danube, singing "Du bist Musik".
