Aish: Eternal We Stand

“This is nothing more and nothing less than recognition of reality. It is also the right thing to do.” Announced President Trump in his monumental statement today, recognizing Jerusalem as “Israel’s capital established in ancient times”.

Jerusalem has been the eternal capital of the Jewish people since Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob worshipped on the Temple Mount.

Jerusalem continued to be the eternal capital of the Jewish nation since King David brought the Holy Ark to rest on the Temple Mount.

This was further affirmed by King Solomon when he built the Temple on the Temple Mount.

Rabbi Steven Burg, CEO of Aish Global proclaimed, “I am proud that the Aish HaTorah Dan Family World Center stands directly across the Temple Mount (rising 7 stories high and encompassing 40% of the length of the Western Wall Plaza). Every Jew in the world knows that our heart and soul belongs to Jerusalem and we are thankful to President Trump for his brave statement today. We are eternally grateful to the United States of America for its tremendous support of world Jewry and Israel in particular. Since the creation of the world, Jerusalem has been and will always be the center of the universe for all Jews. May the Almighty bless all of us with peace and happiness in a unified and strong Jerusalem.”
