With all the activities and celebrations,
of Jerusalem Jubilee, 50 years since liberation and unification,
it was really hard to keep up with everything else that was happening.
There was the annual Street Ball in Liberty Bell Park.
“See the Sounds” Classical Music Festival began May 29,
and runs through June 24, with multiple performances
in locations inside the Israel Museum galleries and its gardens.
The Musrara Festival is June 6- 8 in the evenings,
and even more streets will be filled with
special disabled artistic performers from June 4- 11.
Not everyone is happy with all these new culture festivals.
However, the annual classic
the Hebrew Book Festival, is to be back from June 11-15,
in Jerusalem’s Takhana HaRishona, First Station.
Another Jerusalem annual long time event,
the Israel Festival is going from June 1- 18.
Also in June, there is Design Week,
and perhaps another Opera in the Sultan’s Pool.
July starts off with Maccabiah and tens of thousands of athletes coming
from around the world to participate in sporting events,
and new signs were painted on the streets.
The annual Light Festival is set for June 28 – July 6
with large signs posted,
and the International Film Festival is set for July 13-23.
These are a few of the upcoming happenings in Jerusalem.
Holidays are over and summer is here,
only worry is what to do first.
Hope we can rest up on Shabbat, so as to be ready for
another Jerusalem Festival Season.
