Dr. Martin Oliner, the chairman of the Center for Righteousness and Integrity (CRI), praised the Congressional event celebrating the 50th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem during the Six Day War as a resounding success.

"We made history today," Dr. Oliner said. "We had an overwhelming response, and regrettably, we couldn't even accommodate all the senators and congressmen who other wise would have been here."

"This is beyond extraordinary," he said of the event, which CRI organized. "No event like this has ever occurred. We've never recorded something like this in the halls of Congress."

"You see the overwhelming support which Congress has for Israel.

He said that the event sends a message to Jews and Israel supporters around the world. "This is the one hour in time that history needs to be made."

"With unity, there is nothing that we Jews can't do."
