✡ Peace of Jerusalem ✡
The first Hebrew word many people learn is “shalom” (שלום), which has three meanings: hello, goodbye and peace. It is the word with which friends greet one another, but ‘shalom’ is more than a greeting, it is also a blessing. Peace is the most important gift we can ask from God, on an individual level, as families, and between nations. It is therefore of utmost significance that the world’s holiest city, Jerusalem (ירושלים), has the word ‘shalom’ at its core, because it is meant to be the source for all peace on earth. King David exhorts “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem,” for when Jerusalem is confronted with conflict, the whole world suffers, however when Jerusalem is at peace, the entire world enjoys serenity.
