The Six Day War Project - Video #7

June 2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the Six-Day War (June 5-10, 1967) between Israel and the surrounding Arab countries. We are sharing with you a 12-part video series entitled Countdown to the Six-Day War Project. These videos, co-sponsored by The Jewish Federations of North America, track the events of May and June 1967, cover the conditions leading up to the war, and chronicle the events that took place on the six days of battle.

June 7, 1967: Day Three of the war. “The Temple Mount is in our hands.” In the seventh video of the 12-part mini-series, witness the dramatic moment when a 2,000-year-old dream became a reality. On this day, Israeli forces took control of Eastern Jerusalem including the Old City and the Temple Mount, Judaism’s holiest site. This was seen by many as a profound moment in Jewish history. Watch the video to see the story unfold.

The war was a pivotal event in the history of the Middle East, the Jewish people, and Israel-Diaspora relations. The Six-Day War Project depicts through film the dramatic and suspenseful events of 1967 that transformed the State of Israel.

The series concludes with several segments that examine the immediate effects of the war and long-term aftermath of this iconic chapter in the history of the Jewish state.

Stay tuned for the 8th video.
