Today Israel and the Jewish people celebrate Yom Yerushalayim – Jerusalem Day – commemorating the reunification of the city in 1967 and the establishment of united Jerusalem as the eternal capital of the State of Israel and the Jewish people.
The Jewish Policy Center can find no better words than those of President Donald Trump on his visit to Israel to mark the occasion:
“Jerusalem is a sacred city. Its beauty, splendor, and heritage are like no other place on Earth. What a heritage. The ties of the Jewish people to this Holy Land are ancient and eternal. They date back thousands of years, including the reign of King David whose star now flies proudly on Israel’s white and blue flag.”
