The strange weather (heatwave + duststorm + unseasonal rainfall) and traffic jams made me and T. sit out the Jerusalem Day stuff tonight. The anniversary (acc. to the Hebrew calendar) of the reunification of Jerusalem in 1967 is celebrated particularly by teenagers - eg. the large group that paraded down Emek Refaim this afternoon with Israeli flags. Lots of people go to visit the old city and the Western Wall (where prayers have been conducted for centuries or maybe millenia except for the period of 48-67).
