I was happily surprised. But why should I have been? It should be natural for a nation to celebrate the liberation and the reunification of its capital city. Of course, when the nation is Israel, things are not always natural.
But B"H, in my hometown of Efrat, there were special prayer services last night, ceremonies in school and even a parade.
It was a great way to begin Jerusalem Day, and now I'm off to Jerusalem...
Hope to see you all there in your blue and whites!
