This June 2nd, celebrate Jerusalem Day! This year marks the 52nd anniversary of the reunification of the holiest city in the world. Free activities in the Old City and surrounding areas include musical performances, a parade, a prayer service at the Western Wall and tours of different historical sites.
Israelis and Jews worldwide view the reunification of Jerusalem as a momentous event, if not a divinely orchestrated occurrence. But despite the city’s continued growth and development, there are still thousands of needy residents in the city.
