Jerusalem: The Eternal Jewish Capital

Featuring Danny Ayalon, former Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs and Israeli Ambassador to the US, this animated video (04:00) presents the historical, religious, cultural and physical connection of the Jews to Jerusalem from biblical to modern times. In light of US President Donald Trump’s decision to move the US Embassy to Jerusalem, Ayalon explains that conquering empires throughout history never named Jerusalem as their capital, while Jews were always connected to their eternal capital in body, prayer, and ritual, no matter where they were in the world.
