Pesach 

Description

Each year, I struggle to find meaning in Yom Yerushalayim. As we neared the 50th anniversary of Yom Yerushalayim, I have been giving the holiday a great deal of thought. In this shiur I discuss the miracle of the Six Day War and the meaning of the capture of Jerusalem in the broader context of the State of Israel in 1967. To do that, we study several texts related to the holiday of the Seventh Day of Pesach, and find through it new meaning in Yom Yerushalayim.
