Jerusalem, My Highest Joy

In tribute to Jerusalem Day, and in order to experience a tiny taste of the beauty and inspiration of Jerusalem, here are some family photos that we have taken over the years. Rabbi Kook writes that imagining Jerusalem in our minds, with the keen yearning to be there, this meditation brings the day closer when the city will be rebuilt in all of its splendor and glory, as the Psalmist says: “If I ever forget you, O Jerusalem, may my right hand lose it strength. May my tongue be unable to speak, if ever I think not of you, if ever I not set Jerusalem  above my highest joy!”
