CHAG YOM YERUSHALAYIM HAPPY JERUSALEM DAY 2020!
So much antisemitism is couched in antiZionism and nothing grates the Jew-haters more than seeing a united Jerusalem, the reality of a 2000 year old dream. Today, Jews and our allies all over the world are celebrating the Liberation of Jerusalem in 1967 from the nearly 2 decade long illegal occupation by Jordan. CAEF has selected a few celebratory messages for Yom Yerushalayim to share with our supporters.
Please feel free to share with friends, families, colleagues and with the vastly uninformed part of our society, Jewish and non-Jewish. Telling Our history is important, teaching truth is imperative!

Christian Support for Jerusalem, the Holy City and Capital of the Jewish People
Jerusalem, the “city of peace,” has been the most treasured city of the Jewish people for centuries. However, until 1967, Jews were barred from entering the city and visiting their holiest sites. When Israel miraculously won the Six Day War, Jerusalem was reunited under Israel’s sovereignty. Since then, people of all faiths and backgrounds have been able to visit their holy sites freely.
The newest holiday on the Hebrew calendar, Yom Yerushalayim—Jerusalem Day—commemorates this magnificent moment. Many Jews in Israel show solidarity with their most precious city by making a pilgrimage to Jerusalem.
It has become a recognized celebration within the Jewish state. It is common to quote Psalm 122:3 on Jerusalem Day which refers to Jerusalem as a “city that is bound firmly together” (ESV)—in other words, a united city.
This same psalm encourages believers to “pray for the peace of Jerusalem” and “seek [its] good” (verses 6 and 9). On this year’s Jerusalem Day, which will begin this evening, let’s obey the Lord’s biblical mandate to bless Israel.
Thank you CUFI and Pastor John Hagee.
The Most Beautiful Song for Yom Yerushalayim
Excerpt from an article by Avi Abelow, May 6th, 2020
Teenage Terrorists Toss Molotov Cocktails at Jewish homes in Jerusalem Community on Mount of Olives
Jerusalem was never a divided city, it was always a United City, until Israel’s war of Independence in 1948.
After Israel liberated all of Jerusalem in 1967 Jews returned to live in those neighborhoods as well.
We are home. We are not going anywhere, regardless of the terror war the Muslim Arabs continue to wage against us, with the sympathy of world leaders and journalists. Just think, the Muslim Arabs have been using terror and violence against us for over 100 years. Yet, look at the Jewish people in Israel today. Thriving, growing, and living in rebuilt communities across our ancestral homeland.
Peace with our enemies will come when they learn to live in peace with our presence in our ancestral homeland. Until that day, we will continue defending ourselves.
As former Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir once said “If we (Israel) have a choice between being dead and pitied, and being alive with a bad image, we’d rather be alive and have a bad image”
