What an uplifting prayer service we had this morning! Regardless where you are in the world, watch this video to enjoy with us the Jerusalem Day celebration!!!
There is so much to be thankful for on Jerusalem Day! 49 years ago 6 Arab countries launched a war to destroy Israel and Israel miraculously won that war in only 6 days!
Unknown to most Jews born since 1967, on the eve of the 6 day war, the Jewish people feared that Israel would be destroyed and hundreds of thousands of Jews would be massacred by the 6 invading Arab armies. Miraculously, not only did we win the war, but we liberated Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, the Sinai and the Golan. Totally miraculous!!!
The Jewish people finally had sovereignty over Jerusalem and Judea/Samaria for the first time in 2,000 years!!!
How can one not spend this day saying thank you for all that and the miracles of the war! That is why we are so thankful in prayer, song and dance on this very special day!
