Jerusalem Day, coinciding this week with Friday May 19, marks the 56th anniversary of the liberation and unification of Jerusalem in the miraculous Six Day War.

This week’s Jerusalem Lights podcast looks at the trajectory between this emotionally-charged day of prophetic promise, and Shavuot, the upcoming Festival of Weeks.

Jim Long and Rabbi Chaim Richman reflect on the dual nature of this powerful festival, the anniversary of the giving of the Torah at Mount Sinai, and its relevance to Israel and to the entire world.

Rabbi Richman also shares truth – and facts – about the recent Islamic Jihad attacks against Israel, during which over 1200 missiles were launched at Israel within the period of a few days.
