Today we are celebrating the little known and even less observed, but tremendously important holiday of Yom Yerushalayim, in honor of the reunification in 1967 of our Holy City after our exile from it in 1948. There are a tremendous amount of resources, both articles and videos to help you understand the great miracles that befell us during those days. We invite you to visit our “Yom Yerushalayim” page to tap into the amazing history and stories of our People.
from Sara Yoheved Rigler, “Why Celebrate Jerusalem Day?”
I daily walk on the cobblestone streets where the Prophet proclaimed: “Old men and old women will once again dwell in the streets of Jerusalem … and the squares of the city will be filled with boys and girls playing in its streets.” [Zechariah 8:4]
And every cell of my soul celebrates the God-given gift of the return of the Jewish People to Jerusalem – and the return of Jerusalem to the Jewish People.
Will you celebrate with me?
