CITY OP GOLD
n the grand debate that must ensue
following Israeli endorsement of the
internationally brokered road map
for peace in the Middle East, Jerusalem
will remain the eternal capital of Israel,
just as King David pronounced 3,000
Make no mistake about that.
I can't conceive of Israel giving away its
claim to the City of Gold, where the First
and Second Temples once stood.
For legions of Jews through the ages,
especially since reunification as a result
of the Six-Day War in 1967, Jerusalem
has represented the center of their spiri-
tual universe, no matter how Torah
observant they might be.
So it's fitting that today — May 30
(Iyar 28) — we celebrate Yom
Yerushalyim, Jerusalem Day, the day we
commemorate and validate our claim to
a historic, uplifting city like no other.
