we live here with greater confidence that it is recognized that we are here to stay.

Gol Kalev: “Christmas is going to be a little bit different this year here in Jerusalem. We are not going to have the tourists and visitors that normally come here around this time of the year. And maybe that puts more of the onerous on us the locals to be even more appreciative of this great miracle we have to live in Jerusaelm.

I have been living here for a few years Gina, and I say that I am dreading the day that I will be walking by the walls of Jerusalem and not get emotionally excited. And I am assured by veteran Jerusalemites that that day will never happen.

It is such a blessing to be living here in Jerusalem. And something changed here in Jerusalem a few years ago, and that is the President Trump recognized that Jerusaelm is indeed the capital of Israel and subsequently moved the American embassy to Jerusaelm. Israelis on the left and the right alike are grateful to President Trump and to the American people for doing this. And this helped pave the path toward peace between us and our Arab neighbors.

So I think Christmas of 2020 in Jerusalem is going to be different in two ways: On the one hand, we are not going to have the wonderful tourists coming in, but on the other, we live here with greater confidence that it is recognized that we are to stay.”
