“The temple mount is in our hands!”
Jews have always longed for a return to Jerusalem. The part of the city where battles have been waged for millennia, finally returns, undivided - to form the eternal capital of the State of Israel. From the collective personal experience of the paratroopers who stormed the old city, to the relief experienced of a return, once again to the holy site of the Kotel, the miraculous story of the 6 day war engages us in its alacrity, precision and wonder.
Today’s open and undivided Jerusalem, seems common and natural but to a recent generation the battle was fought daily and collectively so that Jerusalem is now open to all.
