Yom Yerushalayim

12 Feb 2014

Commemorates the historic Day in the Six-Day War when Israel, after King Hussein of Jordan ignored Israel’s warning to stay out of the fighting, seized the Old City of Jerusalem, and the Eternal Capital of Israel was re-united for the first time in 1,900 years. Among the national treasures returned to Jewish control were the “Kotel HaMaaravi,” the Western Wall of the Temple, and the “Har HaBayit,” the Temple Mount.
