Jerusalem Day (a.k.a) Yom Yerushalayim

Jerusalem Day (Hebrew: יום ירושלים, Yom Yerushalayim) is an Israeli national holiday commemorating the reunification of Jerusalem and the establishment of Israeli control over the Old City in June 1967.

The Chief Rabbinate of Israel declared Jerusalem Day a minor religious holiday to thank God for victory in the Six-Day War and for answering the 2,000-year-old prayer of “Next Year in Jerusalem”.

Needless to say..the ahem the “international community” (um guess who that is)never approved the “reunification” of the city under Israeli sovereignty, and many countries (guess who those are)

have not recognized Jerusalem as the capital of the Jewish State.
Surprise surprise eh.

Because clearly every city is “their” capital despite false claims or outright lies huh.

BUT……….(Shhhhhhhhhh…Don’t say their name aloud..They may get ahem…’offended’ and try to blow up some innocent babies at a Marathon somewhere.

That would be despite the fact that Jerusalem has been considered the capital city of the Jewish people since the time of King David, who incidentally conquered it and built it as the seat of his monarchy in approximately 1000 B.C.E.

Uh..That was quite some time ago, was it not?
Sooo..for those of us not in denial about WHO Israel truly belongs to

We celebrate the existence and successes of the modern Jewish State, the ONLY democracy in the entire (blanking)Middle East.



Kosher wine anyone?

OK OK OK..Ya twisted mah arm.

Here are some themed ‘treats’ to feast (your eyes) on.
.or to ahem..’steal’. Heh.


Blue and White…Woot!

Yummy. Yummy.

Dang I missed Y’all.

    For 46 years the city has been united. Obama and company want to cut it in half again. Why? Because they hate seeing Jews in control of anything.

    Welcome back my friend.

    Angel, in your blogger profile, your “Woman Honor Thyself” link still links to your old site.

    I have to say, יום ירושלים is more than a holiday commemorating the reunification of Jerusalem, or should be. It should also commemorate, as we pray on Shabbos night, among others,
    הפורש סכת שלום עלינו ועל כל עמו ישראל ועל ירושלים

    As for that blue cake, well, I’ll pass on that one, thank you.

    At last we can depend on the ANGEL to bring back the news of optimism, ideals and goals to pursue. Israel is the center of the universe physically and spiritually. “From the Walls of Tzion…we are illuminated with morality and righteousness”….blue and white you are mine forever!!!
