Six Day War of 1967 - 3rd Arab Israeli War




"Every one of the hundred million Arabs has been living ... to see the day Israel is liquidated"

Cairo Radio’s Voice of the Arabs broadcast,
May 18th 1967.

Personal recollections from the Diaspora


One of my lasting memories was people commenting "You did well" - just as though I was personally responsible for Israel's victory!

Also our second son was born a month after the war and we named him Moshe Yisroel - a constant reminder of the importance of the year of his birth.

I also remember that Rabbi Shebson called a meeting in the Talmud Torah to raise money and show solidarity and the response was overwhelming. Why is that people have to wait for an emergency before they will act?
