Scheduled for Sunday, June 5th, Jerusalem Day is an Israeli national holiday commemorating the reunification of Jerusalem and the establishment of Israeli control over the Old City in the aftermath of the June 1967 Six-Day War. Also scheduled on Monday, is the first day of Ramadan – a Muslim fast in which Muslims around the world fast all day and eat when the sun goes down. Many Muslims also march up to the Temple Mount. If Ramadan and Jerusalem Day both begin Sunday night, there is a possibility for an overlap with the Jewish marchers, bringing with it a potential for violence. Please pray for peace in Jerusalem and for wisdom and protection of all those involved (Psa. 122:6).
