Celebrating 50 years of unity

image004


Dear friends,

For thousands of years, in times of emotion and yearning, Jerusalem has always been in the hearts of the Jewish people.
This holy city is present during the most meaningful moments of every Jew- in prayers, weddings , blessings and even during days of sorrow.
It has been mentioned as the source of strength and courage of the People of Israel for generations and still is today.
The Jewish people have been waiting for that moment in which their lips would touch the last remnant of the Temple and for them to return to their roots,
for over two thousand years.

Today, fifty years after the reunification of the city, we look with pride towards Jerusalem’s open gates, to its freedom of religion and worship,
and to the amazing combination between old and new. It is a lively metropolitan, a place of industry and commerce, of entertainment, of history,
of pride and of unity.

I invite you to take part in the fifty year celebration of our capital and arrive in Israel through the L’chaim Yerushalayim program of the World Zionist Organization.
Our goal is to bring to Israel many young adults from the Diaspora-the leaders of the next generation- in order to feel, celebrate, rejoice and experience the reunification of Jerusalem.
Through this unique initiative these young people will get the opportunity to create their own personal, first-hand Israeli experience.
Israeli families from around the country will host the young adults from Jewish communities around the world throughout their stay during Jerusalem week.
Being hosted by Israeli families will allow the participants to get a real feeling of life in Israel; they will get to experience the great atmosphere, the food, aromas, celebrations and the joy.
Getting the chance to take part in events in honor of  Yom Yerushalayim will add to the participants sense of belonging and will be an extra unique experience for them.

I call upon you, the heads of organizations, to pass on the information regarding L’chaim Yerushalayim to your representatives and to various communities around the world;
to encourage activists and friends to arrive in Israel for one big Israeli celebration.

The program will be take place between May 21st-28th, 2017 and is aimed for ages 18-30.

 

All tickets purchased through EL AL will be entitled to a 10% discount from all locations.
Any organization, representative or emissary that will bring 50 participants from the same place will be entitled to a free ticket.
