Download PDF for this date

Mayor Teddy Kollek yesterday sent a Jerusalem medal and a message of thanks to Thomas Stafford, commander of the Apollo 10 spacecraft who chose Psalm 122 as part of his Sunday space sermon during the recent moon flight. The sermon read, in part, “our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem.” The medal was accompanied by an invitation to visit Israel’s capital.
