Rabbi Sacks on Jerusalem: The 50th Anniversary of Reunification

In this moving video (7:15), Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks, the previous Chief Rabbi of Great Britain, tells the moving story of the Jewish love affair with Jerusalem. He describes how the Jewish people never stopped yearning for Jerusalem, remembering the holy city in prayer, liturgy and ritual throughout thousands of years in exile. Celebrating 50 years since the Israeli victory in the Six Day War, Rabbi Sacks reflects on the historic moment when the Western Wall came under Israeli control, transforming personal and national fear and dread into celebration and gratitude.
