Our Capital and Our Monarchy Clarification

undefined

Rabbi Yoel Lieberman

Av 27, 5779
Question
You know how people refer to Jerusalem as the capital of the monarchy? What do they mean by this? Thank you.
Answer
ב"ה Shalom I have not heard of that expression. However, I can only imagine it is because King David reigned as the king of Israel in Jerusalem for 33 years. (See Samuel II, 5:5) All the best
