Jerusalem Day

Today was Jerusalem Day, so I thought I would share a few pictures of Jerusalem.

Jerusalem Day is an Israeli national holiday and commemorates the reunification of Jerusalem after the Six-Day War in 1967.

Jerusalem Day is celebrated on the 28th of Iyar on the Hebrew calendar so has a different day each year on the Gregorian Calendar.

Israel Trip 2017, Bible Lands, Luke ChandlerI will start with a picture from a trip I took to Israel in 2017 with a group of my friends from Patterson.

Jerusalem Walls, Ramparts WalkIt is common on Jerusalem Day to take tours of the city. Here is my friend Luke on the Ramparts Walk.

Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives - Dome of the RockHere is another view of Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives that doesn’t have people in the way of the picture šŸ™‚

Jerusalem old city, quiet streets, Jerusalem, Night, closed shopsI am thinking about walking through the Old City of Jerusalem at night. It can be peaceful then.

Western Wall, Shabat, Sabbath, Holy PlaceI think about visiting the Western Wall, especially on a Friday night.

Temple Mount, Western Wall, Beginning of SabbathHere is another view of the Temple Mount from a different direction. I like the lighting in this picture.

Imperial Hotel, Jerusalem, Jaffa GateI also think of the Imperial Hotel which is where I have stayed most often in Jerusalem. It is a great location and is very close to two of my favorite Jerusalem restaurants.

Now that I am thinking of Jerusalem, I am wondering when I will be able to go there again.
