Six Day War

The Six-Day War saw the newly formed Israeli army attacked on all fronts by Egypt, Syria, and Jordan, yet successfully staving off an attempted elimination in a decisive rout of the Arab forces.

The highlight of the war was the recapture of the Old City of Jerusalem, previously held by Jordan. This marked the first time in over 2,000 years that Jews could claim the Western Wall as their own.

Jerusalem Day underscores that the Jewish nation is indomitable, with the flame of their heritage burning eternally in the Old City and Zion.
