With the 50th anniversary of the Six-Day War approaching, Jewish News asked Israelis now living in Arizona to share their memories of that monumental clash.

On June 5, 1967, Israel Defense Forces (IDF) made a pre-emptive strike against thousands of Egyptian troops massing at its border, destroying almost the entire Egyptian Air Force. Jordan and Syria soon joined forces with Egypt to attack Israel. By the time a cease-fire agreement was signed on June 11, victorious Israeli forces had seized control of the Gaza Strip and the Sinai Peninsula from Egypt, East Jerusalem and the West Bank from Jordan, and the Golan Heights from Syria.
