Photo Friday: Toward Your Holy Temple

IDF soldiers with Torah scroll in 1967 at Western Wall, site of Holy Temple


“But I, by your great love,
can come into your house;
in reverence I bow down
toward your holy temple.”
(Psalm 5:7)

After Israel’s victory during the 1967 Six-Day War reunified the Holy City of Jerusalem, IDF soldiers at last brought a Torah scroll, God’s Word, to the Western Wall, the site of the Holy Temple. Each year, Israel remembers the reunification on Jerusalem Day, which falls on May 10 this year. So let us thank our mighty God for reunifying His Holy City. And let us continue praying to Him for His mighty hand of protection of His people Shabbat shalom, friends.
