Saturday, May 14 marks the 74th anniversary of the founding of the modern State of Israel on the secular calendar — and the fourth anniversary of the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem, which President Donald Trump recognized as Israel’s undivided capital.

As Breitbart reported on location at the time, a ray of light from above struck the seal of the embassy just as it was unveiled:

The embassy also posted an enlarged copy of the Jerusalem Embassy Act, the enabling legislation passed by Congress in 1995, and signed by President Bill Clinton, mandating that the embassy be moved to Jerusalem.

The dedication of the embassy officially began with the presentation of colors, the singing of The Star-Spangled Banner, and introductory remarks from U.S. Ambassador David Friedman, who was the master of ceremonies.

“Today, we open the United States Embassy in Jerusalem,” he said.

Opening prayers were delivered by Pastor Robert Jeffress and Rabbi Zalman Wolowick, who both referred to Psalm 122:6: “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.”

Ethiopian Israeli singer Hagit Yaso — whose parents walked across the Sudan to reach Israel — sang a chilling version of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah,” bringing many in the audience to tears.

[W]hen White House advisor — and presidential daughter — Ivanka Trump officially unveiled the seal of the embassy above its entrance, a ray of light struck the Jerusalem stone.

Also speaking were Ivanka Trump’s husband, White House adviser Jared Kushner, who stressed that the U.S. remains committed to negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians.

The recognition of the embassy led indirectly to peace negotiations with several Arab and Muslim nations. Palestinians have attempted to disrupt the growing movement toward Israeli-Arab negotiations, most recently with terrorism and with rioting.

Lewis faced off against eight other celebrities as they relied on their wits, intelligence and muscle to survive in the Panamanian jungle for 15 days. The competitors raised money for the charity of their choice every day they stayed in the race and won challenges.

“I just can’t wait to walk back into Baltimore and hand this check to these kids and see their faces,” Lewis said in the show. “Nobody walks away or loses, nobody.”

Congratulations to @raylewis for raising $134,166 for the Children’s Center on the @cbstv reality series #BeyondTheEdge! Thank you for your selflessness and dedication. We appreciate that you chose us. ???? pic.twitter.com/74OWJwjh1R

“As hard as it was, it really became fun, but it was the most challenging thing, I think… that we’ve ever done, physically and mentally,” Lewis said.

“Harder than a football Super Bowl?” asked anchor Denise Koch.

“Yeah, cause usually after the football Super Bowl I come back home to my bed,” Lewis said.
