Celebrating Jerusalem’s Diversity on Jerusalem Day

Celebrating Jerusalem’S Diversity On Jerusalem Day
For us, everyday is Jerusalem Day! This year we will continue a tradition we started last year with the Jerusalem Intercultural Center, as we  celebrate the diversity of Jerusalem.

Jerusalem is blessed with one of the most diverse populations in the world – religious, secular, Ultra-Orthodox Jews. Christians, Muslims, Arabs, African asylum seekers, immigrants from Ethiopian and the FSU, and new immigrants Israelis from around the globe.

“Jerusalemite Day of Diversity” revels in and honors Jerusalem’s diversity. Some 70 events – large and small – are scheduled to take place on May 23 and 24, and the list is growing. Click here for the project’s web site.

Events include tours of various parts of Jerusalem: the Jewish-Arab seam line, the Haredi-non-Haredi seam line, Mount Zion and more; parades and activities along the Jerusalem Railway Park and on Azza Road. Commemorations with the Israeli Ethiopian community and celebrations with people with disabilities. And much, much more. Click here for a complete list of events.
