Jerusalem Day

From the traditions of the Sages

Talmud Bavli Pessachim, 8:72:

Rabbi Dustai said: Why are there no Tiberias Springs in Jerusalem? So that there will be no pilgrimage saying: if we did not make a pilgrimage for any other reason but to wash in the Tiberias Springs, it would be a pilgrimage for no good purpose. Rabbi Yitzhak said: Why are there no Genosar cows (which were particularly sweet) in Jerusalem? So that there will be no pilgrimage saying: if we only made a pilgrimage to eat Genosar cows in Jerusalem it would be a pilgrimage for no good purpose.

 

Jerusalem Talmud; Hagiga, 83_5-6:

Rabbi Yehoshua Ben Levy said:

“The built Jerusalem is a city that has been joined together” -  a city that makes all of Israel friends.

 

Exodus Rabbah, 52:

Rabbi Yohanan said:

When the Holy One Blessed be He builds Jerusalem he will return to it all the joy, saying: “Because the Lord consoled Zion….happiness and joy shall be there, thanks and the sound of singing”.

 

Derech Eretz Zuta Tractate, The Peace Chapter

Rabbi Yehoshua Ben Levy said:

The Holy One Blessed be He said to the Children of Israel: “You have finished expanded my home and exiling my sons – they are asking how is Jerusalem and I am giving you peace”
