This is what the Lord says: “I will return to Zion and dwell in Jerusalem. Then Jerusalem will be called the Faithful City, and the mountain of the Lord Almighty will be called the Holy Mountain.”

This is what the Lord Almighty says: “Once again men and women of ripe old age will sit in the streets of Jerusalem, each of them with cane in hand because of their age.The city streets will be filled with boys and girls playing there.” (Zechariah 8:3-5)

In this photo, taken in 1947, a year before Israel fought for and won her independence, the people of the Holy Land take to the streets in celebration on May 1. Shabbat shalom, friends.
