The day ended with a happy birthday celebration for dozens of the city's 90 year olds, which included a dance performance, greetings and personal stories of the participants, with the participation of students from the Jerusalem schools. Among the celebrants was Malka Masuda, a resident of Nahlaot, who today celebrated her 100th birthday! Earlier, a dance was held for Holocaust survivors and an exhibition was held in cooperation with Café Europa and the Association for the Welfare of Holocaust Survivors.
A Record breaking number of volunteer projects that combined thousands of residents with more than 40,000 volunteers from many sectors of the city!

The choice to end the day with the 90 year olds birthday celebration testifies to the mutual respect shared by the residents and the sense of Jerusalem as a community - no one is left alone! "
