The liberation of Jerusalem in 1967 marked the first time in thousands of years that the united City of Jerusalem, came under Jewish sovereignty. On the 28′ day of Iyar (by the Hebrew calendar)June 7 IDF paratroopers advanced through the Old City towards the Temple Mount and the Western Wall, bringing Jerusalem’s holiest site under Jewish control for the first time in 2000 years. The battle of Jerusalem was one of the most difficult and bloody battles of the Six Day War. Conducted in a relatively small area 182 Israeli soldiers were killed and several hundreds were wounded during the fighting.
To celebrate this occasion we want to share with you the inspiring story of Aliz Noy, a Beit Halochem member who took part in the battle to free Jerusalem.
