Your Jerusalem Is Back!Feb 16th, 2010 | By Melech ben Ya'aqov | Category: Editor's Corner, Lead Article
Welcome to the new website of Your Jerusalem. We have vastly upgraded our infrastructure and hope that you, our reader, will enjoy the difference. Please bear with us patiently as we expand our current site.
After a hiatus of 7 years, 2 months, 7 days, 11 hours and 55 minutes, I am proud to announce that Your Jerusalem is back. Your Jerusalem, during its time in the late 1990’s, developed quite a dedicated following among the citizens of Jerusalem, Israel and even around the world. It was certainly one of the thrills and highlights of my life to publish and edit this unique newspaper. When the newspaper closed after the September, 1999 issue, I always knew that some day I would bring it back; it had become too much a part of my life not to. Well, a lot has changed in the past 7 years, both in my life and in the life of the Nation of Israel, but Your Jerusalem is back, better than ever, and has begun once again, with the help of the Elohim of Israel, to cover the important, groundbreaking and sometimes controversial issues that made it so popular in the past. In coming months, I will describe in more detail my vision for the future of Your Jerusalem. In the meantime, I hope that you will get great value and enjoyment out of our current issue.
Before I sign off, I must thank three individuals for encouraging me to re-establish Your Jerualem. The first is Olivia Worthy, a dear friend and Senior Editor of Your Jerusalem. The second is Jodi Pasner-Center, another very dear friend and, over the years, one of the newspaper’s strongest supporters. And the third is author Barry Chamish, who wrote for the newspaper in the late 1990’s and with whom I recently re-established contact after many years.
