Dancing in the Holy City ✡ “There Was Great Rejoicing In Yerushalayim” – Israel365

 There was great rejoicing in Yerushalayim, for since the time of King Shlomo son of David of Yisrael nothing like it had happened in Yerushalayim
II Chronicles 30:26 (The Israel Bible™)

וַתְּהִי שִׂמְחָה־גְדוֹלָה בִּירוּשָׁלִָם כִּי מִימֵי שְׁלֹמֹה בֶן־דָּוִיד מֶלֶךְ יִשְׂרָאֵל לֹא כָזֹאת בִּירוּשָׁלִָם
Hear the verse in Hebrew

va-TAY-hee seem-KHA ge-do-LAH b’-ye-rus-SHA-layim kee m’-ye-MAY SHLO-mo ben
da-VEED me-LEKH yis-ra-EL lo ka-ZOT b’-yis-ra-EL

Dancing in the Holy City

In the Bible, there are many instances of dance being used as an expression of joy and thanksgiving. One of the most famous instances of dance in the Bible is Miriam and the Israelite women dancing in jubilation after their deliverance from Egypt. The book of Psalms also speaks of dance as an expression of joy among the residents of Yerushalayim(Jerusalem). As we approach Jerusalem Day, the 51st anniversary of the reunification of Yerushalayim, this same feeling of joy and jubilation can be felt throughout the Holy City.
