The largest Israeli flag in the world and a lot of joy: thousands of people at the Western Wall

Already on the Sabbath [Saturday], teenagers marched to the Western Wall, ahead of the opening event of Jerusalem Day - a festive musical prayer followed by dancing - on the 55th anniversary of the unification of the city. About ten thousand people were present at the site Ynet broadcasts live from the Western Wall throughout the holiday

Haim Goldich, Updated: 29/05/2022

Some 4,000 members of the youth movements flocked to the place - some of them marched there on foot from the various neighborhoods in the capital already during the Sabbath. At the beginning of the event, they displayed the largest Israeli flag ever hung in Jerusalem, covering an area of ​​1,000 square meters, with the sign "Rejoice with Jerusalem and be glad for her, all you who love her."

The Mayor of Jerusalem, Moshe Leon, said that "Jerusalem, the capital of Israel, is happy and proud to host these wonderful youth in our beloved city. Hence, the holiest place for the Jewish people, we send a prayer of unity, partnership and brotherhood to all the people of Israel and the entire Jewish people. It is a great privilege to be here with you on the day of the celebration of our beloved capital. " He called on "the whole house of Israel to go up to Jerusalem, and enjoy the great variety that our city has to offer."

The rabbi of the Western Wall and the Holy Places, Shmuel Rabinowitz, told the youth that they are here thanks to "the secret of the eternal chain of generations." "Tonight I want to say thank you in my name and on your behalf to all the generations that were before us, who dreamed of Jerusalem, who wrote about Jerusalem, who swore to return to Jerusalem from Ethiopia, Hungary, Yemen, Spain - even though they never saw it. ', We will be privileged to witness the coming of our righteous Messiah and the building of our temple soon in our day."
