“LORD, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!

You have set your glory
in the heavens.
Through the praise of children and infants
you have established a stronghold against your enemies,
to silence the foe and the avenger.
When I consider your heavens,
the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
which you have set in place…”
(Psalm 8:1-3)

This week, the people of Israel celebrated fifty years of reunification of their “stronghold,” the Holy City of Jerusalem. Here, we experience the celebration in the Old City, as seen from the Mount of Olives. Shabbat shalom, friends.
