What is the significance of Yom Yerushalayim?
What is the added value of Yom Yerushalayim over Yom Ha’atzmaut and why do we need to celebrate both days?
Yom Yerushalayim is the building of the spirituality of the State of Israel, and our identity as a Jewish nation in our land. Yom Ha’atzmaut is the physical building of the state. The added value of Yom Yerushalayim is the intrinsic, essential, deep understanding of who we are as a people, what our mission is in the world and how to use this wonderful gift, called The Land of Israel, as our physical foundation that will serve our spiritual mission. Yom Yerushalayim helps us achieve Hebrew Universalism.
