Jerusalem Day

Jerusalem Day at 05.06.2024

Until 05.06.2024

Jerusalem Day is cause for much revelry in Jewish areas of the city, and the municipality festoons the city in decorations. Jubilant throngs bedecked in blue and white fill the streets downtown for the lengthy Jerusalem Day parade, a sometimes surreal affair where a smart military formation of graying Six-Day War veterans can be followed by a garish Mardi Gras-worthy float manned by one or another labor union, and that followed by a legion of cheerful Christian Zionists from the Philippines.


Face-painting and miniature-flag-waving are the order of the day, and you may as well learn the words to Naomi Shemer's "Jerusalem of Gold" if you haven't already. Stages are set up in city parks and malls, big-name musical acts descend on the city, and most of the city's cultural venues prepare special lineups of Jerusalem-themed content.
