Six Days of Miracles: The Religious Significance of the Six Day War

Created by the World Mizrahi religious Zionist organization, this uplifting video (10:09) interprets Israel’s surprising and total victory in the Six Day War as a modern-day miracle. Employing biblical language, the video emphasizes the Divine hand and religious significance of some of Israel’s greatest military achievements of the war, including the preemptive attack on the Egyptian air force and the reunification of Jerusalem, celebrated on the Israeli national holiday of Yom Yerushalayim. With a combination of archival footage and animation, the video also discusses the psychological and geopolitical causes of the war and the role of the international community.
