Some 600 people attended a festive prayer celebration in honor of Jerusalem Day organized by OU Israel. Attendees included RIETS Rosh Yeshiva Rabbi Zvi Shechter, Rabbi Shalom Gold, director of the Avram Silver institute of OU in Israel, OU Israel director Rabbi Rabbi Avi Berman, and Zvi Sand, the President of OU Israel.

The dancing was led by singers Yitzhak Meir and Shlomo Katz who succeeded in expressing and highlighting the deep connection of the participants to Jerusalem.

OU Israel director Rabbi Berman explained that "we all pray that we merit seeing G-d return to Zion but those who immigrate to Israel are not just praying they are doing it themselves. They left comfortable lives in North America and came to realize the prayer which they say daily. They are true Zionists."
