Al haNissim for Yom Yerushalayim (composed by Dr. Avi Shmidman and Rav Yitzchak Etshalom)
- 33 min 7 sec
Since the miraculous days of June 1967, we have celebrated the reunification of Yerushalayim, the city of our chief joy. Along with reciting Hallel, there have been various liturgical poems (פיוטים) written for the occasion. In order to be able to incorporate thanks to Hashem for the great miracle of the restoration of Jewish sovereignty over the Eternal City of Yerushalayim, we have composed a text of על הנסים, which retells the long years of distance, the threat and subsequent miraculous victory, the explosion of jubilation that followed and the commitment that we all have to keep Yerushalayim and her welfare as our chief joy. Besides the source sheet, a link to the text, along with English translation and additional sources is included.
