This is one of my favorite days of the year. Really. This is a VERY special day. It is Jerusalem Day. Yom Yerushalayim. Today we celebrated 46 years since Jerusalem’s reunification. And what a celebration it was!!! The streets of Jerusalem were filled with singing and dancing, joy and laughter! We celebrated God’s faithfulness to His People, His Land and particularly to His city!
I think I will let the pictures speak for themselves mostly.
It was again a beautiful experience. Spiritual. Building. Uplifting. Strengthening. Encouraging. Unifying. Wonderful, really.
After having celebrated in the new part of the city of Jerusalem for a few hours, we headed towards the Old City and the Western Wall together with thousands of others. The flags and crowds were like rivers in the streets. The music filled the air completely, and the whole experience was just amazing.
We even got to walk on the walls of Jerusalem for a little bit.
I am very thankful to get to raise my children in Jerusalem. They feel so at home here. Naturally.
And then we ended up at the Kotel, the Western Wall. Beautiful as always.
I was just trying to imagine what it must have been like to see this sight for those who came here 46 years ago, after not being able to access the place for the last 19 years, from 1948 to 1967. How special! And it is still unique today. There is no place like it. And, there is certainly no place like Yerushalayim.
