Guest blogger for Naso/Yom Yerushalayim is our creative granddaughter Shirel Alexenberg who was born on Jerusalem Day. She celebrated the liberation of Jerusalem by photographing the Old City in Jerusalem. Her name Shirel is written with the same Hebrew letters as Israel.
Liberate people who are blind though they have eyes and deaf thought they have ears. (Isaiah 43:8)
Shirel photographed the 17th century Raban Yohanan Ben Zakai Synagogue rebuilt after having been demolished by the Arabs in 1948.
Shirel's father Rabbi Ron Alexenberg studied at this yeshiva with its current head Rabbi Yisrael Avihai from Yeroham where Shirel grew up.
