Shabbat Shalom

Instead of a new photo for Shabbat Shalom greeting,

this one goes back to summer of 1965.

old view of Jerusalem Shabbat shalom poster

At that time under rule of Jordan,

Jews could only look from afar,

over a ‘No Man’s Land’ at

 The Old City and the Temple Mount.

Now much of the world is calling to go back,

to a time when The Kotel, Western Wall

was Judenrein,

a time of complete separation and

a truly divided

Jerusalem, Israel.

But today, the rain has finally stopped,

the sun is shining and sky blue,

time to get outside and enjoy the clean warm air.

שבת שלום

Shabbat shalom.
