OU ad urges prayer, advocacy on Jerusalem Day

WASHINGTON (JTA) — The Orthodox Union is urging American Jews to mark the anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem with prayer, Torah study and advocacy.

"Those who now seek to tear Jerusalem apart do so in editorials and Op-Eds, in lobbying meetings, and in White House conversations," says an ad that will appear in Jewish newspapers ahead of Jerusalem Day, which this year falls on May 12. "They urge President Obama to impose a peace plan that includes the redivision of the Holy City, asserting that ‘everyone knows’ that this is what must be done. That assertion is false."
