Because of the persistent efforts of previous generations over the last 71 years, Israel and the worldwide Jewish community celebrate Yom Yerushalayim with great joy—as prophesied.
For people of faith living in the 21st century, the prophetic implications are staggering. More than 2700 years ago, the prophet Isaiah urged us to rejoice with Jerusalem!
As mortal beings, it’s impossible to foresee the outcome of events where the course of history is altered in a way we never anticipated. Yet, on Yom Yerushalayim—Jerusalem Day—such an outcome is commemorated.
