And give him no rest till he restores Yerushalayim and makes it a praise on earth.

by Israeli soprano Keren Hadar. The video contains actual radio recordings from the Six-Day War, plus scenes from the new CBN docudrama "In Our Hands: The Battle for Jerusalem," released on May 23 in honor of the 50th anniversary of the Six-Day War.
Pray For The Peace Of Yerushalayim
I can`t describe it. I'm on fire for my G-d! As we are HIS, so is the Country He gave us. It is part of me it's in my DNA.
If you see me you see my G-d and my Country! You can't split it!
Being a D'Vorah is about being a leader a general in times of war, and being a mom. Praying and serving to get those who are not yet, or who have drifted away, back into the heart of the Father, who left their roots because of all the persecution, who left our G-d because of the same reason!
During the 6 days war Abba gave me a word in my heart
HE WHO PROMISED IS FAITHFUL!
That war was totally directed by our G-d! A miracle because of HIS favor and HIS hand!
The fire is burning in my heart.

Rare video document of the liberated Jewish survivors of Buchenwald "1945" who tried to join Eretz Israel. Before their arrest they will hoist the flag of Israel and sing the Hatikvah "hope", the song that will become the official anthem of the State of Israel in 2004.
The Six-Day War
As seen and told in this video, it was impossible not to feel G-d’s presence during the Six-Day War. It was impossible not to recognize the miracles. The whole world witnessed it. Perhaps the most poignant comment was the point made that the State of Israel was born just 3 years after Auschwitz, but the soul of the State of Israel was born 19 years later in 1967.
The Origins of the Name Yerushalayim
Posted by YOEL GANOR JULY 5, 2017
Let us now explore the origin and the meaning of the name Yerushalayim
The name Jerusalem, or Yerushalayim in Hebrew, first appears in the Book of Joshua (10:1).
וַיְהִי כִשְׁמֹעַ אֲדֹנִי-צֶדֶק מֶלֶךְ יְרוּשָׁלִַם, כִּי-לָכַד יְהוֹשֻׁעַ אֶת-הָעַי
Now it came to pass when Adoni-Zedek king of Jerusalem heard how Joshua had taken Ai…
Geographically it is the Temple Mount, the very spot where Abraham almost sacrificed his son Isaac.
The Torah mentions:
וַיִּקְרָא אַבְרָהָם שֵׁם הַמָּקוֹם הַהוּא ה’ יִרְאֶה
And Abraham named that place, The Lord will see
The Hebrew word for “will see” is yireh.
That’s the first half of the name Yer’shalem.
But, what was the city called before Abraham renamed it Yireh?
Let us be reminded that after rescuing his nephew Lot from captivity, Abraham was greeted by Melchizedek the king of Shalem, who greeted him with bread and wine.
An ancient tradition tells us that Melchizedek (believed to be Shem) was actually one and the same as Shem, son of Noach and that Shalem was none other than the very place that Abraham would eventually rename as Yireh.
So, now we see that “Shalem” is the second half of Yerushalem:
yireh + Shalem = Yerushalayim
But how did Yireh and Shalem get together to become Yerushalayim, you may ask?
The Midrash shares with us a beautiful glimpse into the process of the creation of the name Yerushalayim:
“Said the Holy One, blessed be He, “If I call the place Yireh like Abraham did, the righteous Shem will complain. However, if I refer to it as Shalem, the righteous Abraham will complain. Rather, I will call it Yerushalayim, and that name will contain the way it was called by both of them: Yireh Shalem.”
In fact, Yireh Shalem has an also deeper meaning: “Complete awe.”
יראה = Awe
שלם = complete
Yireh Shalem (or Jerusalem) therefore means “complete awe,” a state where one is so in touch with G‑d as to be in constant rapture.
Thus, on a spiritual level, Yerushalayim is not just a city on a world map.
It is that special place within each and every one of us where we are one with G‑d and deeply in tune with His presence.
And the expression Yom Yerushalayim – יום ירושלים
appears in the above psalm (Psalms:137):
זְכֹר ה’, לִבְנֵי אֱדוֹם אֵת, יוֹם יְרוּשָׁלִָם
Remember, O LORD, against the children
of Edom the day of Jerusalem

1 Kings 11: 36 CJB
To his son I will give one tribe so that David my servant will always have a light burning before me in Yerushalayim, the city I chose for myself as the place to put my name.
Rabbi Sacks On Yerushalayim זכרונו לברכה zikhrono livrakha
In the Blessing of Jacob, and elsewhere ascribed by textual scholars to a similar or earlier time period, Ephraim and Manasseh are treated as a single tribe, with Joseph appearing in their place. From this, it is regarded as obvious that originally Ephraim and Manasseh were considered one tribe — that of Joseph. ( Wikipedia )
Joseph called the first-born son Manasseh מְנַשֶּׁה (menasheh). Joseph said: “God has made me forget (כִּי־נַשַּׁנִי אֱלֹהִים) completely my hardship and my parental home”. The name Manasseh is connected to the verbal stem נשך (nashach) which refers to forgetting and letting go. A very common usage of נשך (nashach) describes someone being, “relieved from debt.” This positive meaning is a better parallel to the second sons’ name, Ephraim (אֶפְרָיִם), which means, “made me fruitful”. When naming Ephraim, Joseph said: “God has made me fertile (כִּי־הִפְרַנִי אֱלֹהִים) in the land of my affliction” (Gen.41:51-52). As seven fruitful harvest years came to an end, it became obvious that Joseph was not a lunatic and that Pharaoh had been wise in appointing him to the task of setting aside massive quantities of food.
