Hi friends!  I have made my way to the Leadership Briefing and Summer Conference, hosted by the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem – US Branch, and hope to find time to provide updates.

Meanwhile, Israel celebrated Jerusalem Day (Yom Yerushalayim) a couple days ago in grand Israeli style!  Reports are that 100,000 Israelis marched from Jerusalem’s Great Synagogue to the Western Wall (the customary route), singing and dancing as only Israelis can!

Here is a report in pictures.  Enjoy!

BTW – If you are not aware, there is a special encore showing of the film In Our Hands: The Battle for Jerusalem taking place across the US on June 1.  It chronicles the Six Day War in which Israel scored the victory that reunified Jerusalem.  I encourage you to see it!
