Jerusalem is no ordinary city, it has a counterpart in heaven, the New Jerusalem which will one day descend to earth. The Land of Israel is no ordinary land, it was chosen by the Most High whose "eyes roved over the whole earth in search of a land for His covenant people." The Jewish people are no ordinary people, they are chosen by G-d to be a witness of His calling, thereby we witness the many sunrises and sunsets in their world history.
