Event Description

the fourth JERUSALEM HUG will take place on Monday, June 21st 2010. We invite you to come to Jerusalem and embrace the city as a symbol for peace, love and unity. We will walk hand in hand around the city walls and stand shoulder to shoulder sharing our love for Jerusalem and our wish for peace.

The JERUSALEM HUG is a symbol for another way to achieve peace. Everywhere the belief in a political solution of the Middle East conflict has gone down to almost zero. We must find another way and that is the way of the heart. We believe that when we find peace in ourselves and when we are able to forgive, world peace will come closer.
The JERUSALEM HUG gives expression to this wish for change as a concrete statement. Jerusalem stands as a symbol for peace and forgiveness in the world. Let Jerusalem be a city of connection, the heart of the world where unity in diversity will be a living fact.

Gather at two meeting points around the Old City:
1) Palm Tree's Garden (Suk Al-Falhin)- west of Damascus Gate
2) Jaffa Gate

* Palm Tree's Garden (Suk Al-Falhin)- west of Damascus Gate:
Interfaith dialogues and children’s activities, led by the Jerusalem
Peacemakers. The participants spread out around the walls of the
Old City,forming a human chain. Silent prayers followed by
blessings for Harmony, Peace, Justice and Unity in Jerusalem and
the world, supported by musicians and drummers.
* Jaffa Gate:
Dvora Perlman will lead the participants southwards for a circle walk
around the Old City, accompanied by drumming and songs that will
carry a message of Unity and Love passing through all of the
ancient gates .

The walkers arrive at Damascus Gate and unite with Hug participants. Holding hands with music and drums, walking in line in the direction of Tzahal Square.

Grand Finale in Tzahal Square to celebrate peace with drums, sacred singing and dance.

Please bring music instruments with you!
