June 29 – Yom Mei Gichon

Home/June 29 – Yom Mei Gichon

Today we learned about the importance of water in Jerusalem throughout history and in modern times. During the time of Chizkiyahu, when Yerushalayim was under siege, Chizkiyahu built a long underground tunnel which led from the city to the water source. This was important because even under siege, they were able to have access to the water.  In modern times, in 1948 when Yerushalayim was under siege, the Jews created a secret pipeline which led outside of the city to access more water. They called it Kav Hashiloach.

Last night, we had an amazing time at our opening program for this year’s theme: Moshevet Yerushalayim!
