Several hundred people, Jews and non-Jews, participated in the annual march around the Old City of Jerusalem, the eternal capital of the State of Israel.

Each year, Women for Israel’s Tomorrow, popularly known as Women in Green, a non-profit “dedicated to safeguarding our God-given biblical homeland,” leads a march around the Old City of Jerusalem on the eve of Tisha b’Av, when Jews commemorate the destruction of the Holy Temple.

Women in Green co-head Nadia Matar asks, “What is so special about this year’s event?”

In fact, she continues, why do Jews still mourn on Tisha b’Av, when they have the Jewish State of Israel?

What was the “terrible reminder” this year that tells us there is still so much to do to attain full sovereignty and why was this year’s walk so important?

Why is Jerusalem considered by some as the safest city in the world?
