Mighty and different, Chairman of the Eshkolot organization: “Jerusalem Day events are an important milestone for Eshkolot in the Hebrew calendar, and a real holiday with many tours and events related to Jerusalem, a city with sanctity and a thousand-year connection to the Jewish people. Against all odds, we united Jerusalem, from east to west, we went through the Six Day War and the IDF fighters reached important achievements, which we will talk about in various ways and activities. The public is invited to come or contact the clusters and book tailored tours for families and groups, prepared in honor of the special day – Happy Jerusalem Day for the whole house of Israel. “
