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.
I will start with a picture from a trip I took to Israel in 2017 with a group of my friends from Patterson.
It is common on Jerusalem Day to take tours of the city. Here is my friend Luke on the Ramparts Walk.
Here is another view of Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives that doesn’t have people in the way of the picture 🙂
I am thinking about walking through the Old City of Jerusalem at night. It can be peaceful then.
I think about visiting the Western Wall, especially on a Friday night.
Here is another view of the Temple Mount from a different direction. I like the lighting in this picture.
I 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.
