      Historian: Brave Jews Set Jerusalem’s Borders


      The city of Jerusalem looks like it does today because of the pioneers who lived – and died – to make it what it is, historian Yossi Shpiner told Arutz Sheva. On Tuesday afternoon a memorial will be held for 16 young soldiers who were killed by an Arab mob in 1948 in northern Jerusalem. The fallen soldiers are not widely commemorated today, although a road in the neighborhood of Pisgat Zev, near where they fell, is named Hashishaesar (The Sixteen) in their honor.
