There are times when the difference between the Jewish lunar calendar and the American solar calendar provide and opportunity for additional reflection and exploration on important subjects.
This week is one of those times. Three weeks ago we began providing some perspective on the 50th Anniversary of the 6-Day War, in advance of Yom Yerushalayim, which fell on the Hebrew calendar about two weeks ago, the holiday that commemorates the unification of the holy city of Jerusalem in 1967. In May we explored the extraordinary events and miraculous military results of the 6-Day War itself in context. We talked a great deal about the capital city of Israel, both the Old and New City, East and West Jerusalem.
