Throughout the ages, many people have laid claim to the holy city of Jerusalem. However, for the Jewish people Jerusalem has played the central role for thousands of years as it’s sole spiritual home. Come learn why the reunification of Jerusalem during the 6 Day War has a very special and regnant meaning for the Jewish people.
