flowers of Jerusalem:       Yad ha-Shmona - Finnish Village near Jerusalem
17 April 2003 26 May 2004 18 Aug 2005 4 March 2011

The village was founded in 1971 by Finnish believers in the bible, who came to help build the young Jewish State.
The name "Yad haShmona" is in the memory of the eight Jews transported from Finland to german death camps during the Holocaust.
Finland denied the german request to transport more Finnish Jews to german/polish concentrating camps.
"yad" means memorial and "shmona" means eight.
