Yom Yerushalayim

We celebrate Yom Yerushalayim, the anniversary of the re-unification of Jerusalem in 1967, with the recitation of the full Hallel—with a blessing—in our morning services. The Congregation often participates with other synagogues and organizations in sponsoring communal celebrations of Yom Yerushalayim.
