The Jerusalem family at risk of losing their home – and how we can help by Anna Roiser
Last Friday, we celebrated Jerusalem Day, the anniversary of the day in 1967 when the Jewish people regained access to our holy sites in the Old City of Jerusalem. This Friday, we celebrate Shavuot, and the giving of the Torah to the Jewish people.
Hillel famously identified the Torah’s essence as “what is hateful to you, do not do to your neighbour”. Yet in the holy city of Jerusalem, our behaviour to our East Jerusalem neighbours has failed to live up to this ideal.
