Happy Independence Day to all Americans, wherever you may be!
This is the closest thing Jerusalem has to the Statue of Liberty.
The statue and New York Place were dedicated in 1993 by Mayor David Dinkins of New York City and our late great Mayor Teddy Kollek. Actually it is just a little traffic island between several busy Jerusalem streets.
So to make this post look more like the joy of the 4th of July--BOOM, crackle--fireworks!
Jerusalem also has a replica of America's famous bell. To see it in our Liberty Bell Park, click here.
Happy birthday, United States. Savor your liberty and good life.
God bless America, land of my birth.
