Yom Yerushalayim

Shavua Tov. Tonight is יום ירושלים when we say, זה היום עשה ה׳ נגילה ונשמחה בו, “This the day Hashem did for us. We will be glad and rejoice on it.”

Perhaps the greatest miracle witnessed in modern times, is the miracle of the Six Day War and the return of Jerusalem and other holy territories to the Jewish people.

It is essential that we recognize this and give gratitude to Hashem for this incredible Chessed that He did for us. The trait of הכרת הטוב, recognizing the good done for us is extremely important. Such gratitude and recognition leads to many wonderful things.

We are brought closer to G-d as we show appreciation for giving us so much beyond what is deserved. We will develop our אהבת ה׳,  love of G-d, and we will learn to reach the level of שמח בחלקו, being happy with our lot in life.

Yom Yerushalayim is the perfect time to begin and continue showing gratitude for the endless gifts that we are constantly receiving from Hashem. Chag Sameach
