3 Sivan 5778
47 Days of the Omer
We are hearing a lot of jubilation today over the US and Guatemala moving their embassies to Jerusalem with more countries hopping on the band wagon every day, it seems - now that it is becoming popular. But I have a question. What thanks or recognition did Costa Rica or El Salvador ever get from us when for 24 years they sat alone in the 'embassy wilderness' of Jerusalem. I can't help wondering how many people even knew that their respective embassies were located in Jerusalem until 2006.
