The Jerusalem Municipality is organizing, for the fourth year, the "White Nights" project, in which hundreds of varied and attractive activities are held for Jerusalem youth during the evening and night. The activities will take place throughout the months of the summer vacation, in all of the city's neighborhoods and for all sectors of the population at no cost (except for a small number of external activities). The project will operate from mid-June to the end of August.
The "White Nights" project has been taking place for several years at the initiative of the Jerusalem Municipality under the leadership of the Youth Division. The project was established in order to provide a social, educational, and attractive solution for youth, close to the neighborhoods where they live. 40,000 youngsters have benefited from the initiative—a number which is even expected to increase this year.
Within the framework of the program, a variety of activities will be held in the neighborhoods: public screenings of the World Cup Finals, artist workshops with Dean Miroshnikov, Shlomi Koriat, Israel Atias, styling and makeup workshops for girls, MDA courses, illumination, carpentry, pool evenings with trips to the Meymadion water park, Superland, Yamit 2000, preparatory transitional activities for 6th grade graduates for the transition to junior high school, illuminated sports arenas - soccer and basketball tournaments, mobile chill corners throughout the neighborhoods, youth clubs that are open almost every evening, where there are a variety of single-session workshops such as: chef workshops, chocolate workshops, sushi workshops, and more.
Some of the workshops require early registration and a nominal fee.
This year, the activities in the neighborhoods have been increased, and the programs have been adapted to all ages and sectors of the population, with an emphasis on encounters between new immigrants and veterans, secular and religious, youth from East and West Jerusalem, leisure and risk prevention, young leadership, and social involvement.
