Robots for Borrowing: do you want to borrow gadgets?https://www.jerusalem.muni.il/en/Municipality/Municipal info/Pages/Robotsforborrowing.aspxRobots for Borrowing: do you want to borrow gadgets?<img alt=" " src="/Municipality/Msg_84/PublishingImages/DeviceLab-1.jpg?RenditionID=14" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /><p>​Instead of spending hundreds or thousands of dollars to buy laptops, 3D cameras, or processors, a new library in Jerusalem will allow developers, students, and technology buffs to borrow innovative products and develop creative apps.</p>​The developers and technology buffs’ community in Jerusalem is enjoying a new library equipped with innovative laptops, smartphones of different kinds, tablets, processors, 3D cameras, and robot assembly kits. The technology library is intended to help students, young people, developers, designers, and entrepreneurs – sworn technology buffs – to develop apps and invent breakthrough technology solutions.The venture, The Device Lab, launched this week, is the initiative of Intel, Young Jerusalem, the Ministry of Jerusalem Affairs and Heritage of Israel, and the Jerusalem Development Authority. It is intended to enable technologists to get hands on experience using the latest products without having to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars of their own money to buy them. For example, it will be possible to find in the laboratory the Intel-TAG Heuer smart watch, Asus and Lenovo Android OS smartphones, Google’s Chromebook laptop (which uses the Chromium operating system), Apple’s MacBook, Asus’s especially powerful ROG series gaming computer, Microsoft’s Surface series tablet and laptop, Intel NUC minicomputers, Edison series smart processors, and Intel’s RealSense cameras. Borrowing from the library is free, after providing a deposit check. The amount of the deposit is derived from the value of the product to be loaned. The period of loan will vary according to the number of available items of the product and the demand. People can take out a company subscription at the site, which includes free use of the library for NIS 300 per month for six months and NIS 450 for an additional six months.The collaboration between Young Jerusalem and Intel will also include demonstration days with technology experts from Intel and other companies. The experts will help solve problems, give lectures and workshops, and will be available for consulting with professionals. Later, the library will cooperate with additional work places in Jerusalem, start-up accelerators, educational institutions, and Jerusalem technology companies. The library will also serve as a stage for companies to present new technologies to entrepreneurs and professional developers on special demonstration days.Minister of Jerusalem Affairs and Heritage of Israel MK Zeev Elkin welcomed the new initiative, saying, “I am impressed by the bustling spirit here. No one doubts the deep historic roots of Jerusalem. Jerusalem has different images which do not match reality, because this city is also a city of young people, a thriving city of amazing academic institutions. It is also a high-tech city, belying its image, which is becoming a world leader – the last word has not yet been spoken. I am pleased that the Ministry of Jerusalem Affairs and Heritage of Israel has been given the opportunity to give you backing. The city deserves young people who will make it a leader in every field, especially in technological development. Do what you see fit, and we will help you get to where you want to go.”Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat emphasized, “The new gadgets’ library provides an international springboard for young entrepreneurs and Jerusalem innovation. It will give an edge to the young smartphone user who is just starting out, to develop with the help of the gadgets that the library will provide. It is no wonder that Jerusalem has been crowned as one of the world’s new and promising hubs of technology entrepreneurship. Jerusalem represents 3,000 years of innovation, and our experience shows that what succeeds in Jerusalem, succeeds worldwide.”Intel Vice President Platform Engineering Group and General Manager of the Intel Development Center in Jerusalem, Shahaf Kieselstein, said that Intel’s team “were very pleased with our privilege to advance technology and entrepreneurship in Jerusalem. A thriving entrepreneurial community is an important asset for the city and the young people in it.”Eldad Weil, the CEO of Young Jerusalem, said that the association “is very proud of the cooperation with Intel in creating the only gadgets’ library of its kind in Jerusalem. Establishment of the library will move Jerusalem’s high-tech scene forward and provide a developmental impetus for young men and women in the city.”7/2/2017 9:00:00 PM
Already paid your share of the arnona? No need to worryhttps://www.jerusalem.muni.il/en/Municipality/Municipal info/Pages/Alreadypaidarnona.aspxAlready paid your share of the arnona? No need to worry<img alt=" " src="/en/Municipality/Municipal%20info/PublishingImages/students.jpg?RenditionID=14" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /><p>​An initiative by Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat will halt enforcement processes against students who have paid their share of the arnona for apartments they rent. “This is the end of bureaucracy. We will no longer allow a situation in which a student who has paid will be the guarantor for his roommate’s debts.”</p>​Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat has initiated a change in the handling of the collection of the arnona (local property tax) for students who share apartments in the city, in order to prevent problems for those students who have paid their share of the arnona. The initiative, prepared at the instructions of the Mayor and led by the National Union of Israeli Students at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, was drawn up in conjunction with the Students Union and the Municipality Youth Authority. It will change the handling of shared apartments to make the payment of the arnona personal for each tenant.Currently, the arnona is paid jointly by all the tenants of an apartment, but enforcement against partial non-payment is collective against all of them. Under the amendment, the arnona will be paid personally by each roommate, so there will be no financial dependence on roommates’ payments. In other words, students who have paid their share will not have to fear a lien against their bank account or other enforcement measures, as in the past.The new arrangement will come into effect in a year, after the new collection system is installed. Until the migration to the new format, to deal with the problem in the coming year, the Municipality will make available a special call center for the problem of arnona foreclosures at shared apartments. The call center will provide a response for students who have paid their share of the arnona, but nonetheless received a foreclosure warning or had a lien placed on their bank account.Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat said, “This is the end of bureaucracy. We will no longer allow a situation in which a student who has paid will be the guarantor for his roommate’s debts. A person who has paid the arnona will no longer have to fear enforcement measures. We are constantly working to lessen red tape and make it easier for young people and students in the city, and we will continue to do so.”Shlomi Yehiev, Chairman of the Students Union at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, said, “This is a revolution! The era of foreclosures against students who have paid their share of the arnona debt is over. As of next year, all the settling of accounts between students will come to an end. We thank all the parties involved at the Jerusalem Municipality, starting with the Mayor, for listening to the voice of the students, for initiating this important change, and for the productive cooperation, despite the many bureaucratic challenges!” Partners in the new arrangement are the Municipality’s Youth Authority, Young Jerusalem, youth portfolio holder Hanan Rubin, and the Students Union.The Municipality calls on all students who have paid their share of the arnona to contact the call center to settle the matter, and for all those who have not yet settled their debt to do so without further delay. The comprehensive arnona payment guide for students (including a guide to discounts) is available at the Students Union at the Hebrew University website https//goo.gl/ge5agG (in Hebrew).The designated email for student inquiries is starnona@jerusalem.muni.il7/2/2017 9:00:00 PM
Mayor Barkat Gives Tour of City of David to Visiting UN Ambassadors Led by Ambassador Danonhttps://www.jerusalem.muni.il/en/Municipality/Municipal info/Pages/BarkatTourCityofDavid.aspxMayor Barkat Gives Tour of City of David to Visiting UN Ambassadors Led by Ambassador Danon<img alt=" " src="/en/Municipality/Municipal%20info/PublishingImages/Credit-%20Arnon%20Bossani.jpg?RenditionID=14" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /><p>​Today, Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat took United Nations ambassadors on a tour of the City of David, the archaeological site of ancient Jerusalem. The Ambassadors are visiting Israel on a tour led by Israel’s Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon and organized by AJC Project Interchange. David Be'eri, Director and Founder of the City of David and 2017 recipient of the Israel Prize, also joined the tour.</p>​During the tour at the City of David, Mayor Barkat showed the ambassadors the largest active archaeological excavation in Jerusalem, the remains of the Pool of Siloam, and a view of ancient Jerusalem landmarks from the City of David Overlook. The findings and the ongoing discoveries of millennia's old artifacts in the City Of David unequivocally contradict the UNESCO denial of a historical connection between the Jewish people and the City of Jerusalem. Barkat told the UN ambassadors "The coin you see in my hands, found in the City of David excavations, is emblazoned with the inscription - 'For the Liberation of Zion.'" This coin is one of thousands that we find at our feet which indisputably prove the Jewish and Christian roots in Jerusalem. Today, we work to fulfill the imperative emblazoned on the coin Jerusalem, under Israeli sovereignty, is free and open to people of all religions, beliefs, and backgrounds." Ambassador Danon spoke of the importance of the visit “To defeat the lies spread about our capital city at the UN, nothing is more important than for my fellow ambassadors to learn the truth about Jerusalem and see the beauty of this city first-hand. The more UN ambassadors visit Israel, the more they appreciate both the challenges we face and the opportunities that exist in our region. This is why I have visited Israel with over thirty UN ambassadors over the past year alone and will keep on bringing more in the months to come.” The delegation of nine ambassadors, from Africa, Central and Eastern Europe, and the Asia Pacific region included the UN ambassadors of Australia, Estonia, Gabon, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Papua New Guinea, Poland, and Togo.

To my delight, for several years TALMA has been able to expand its activities in schools by tens of percent." Through the TALMA program, students in fourth through sixth grades are able to enter the new school year with a full additional month of experiential learning and enrichment in English at a cost of only 600 NIS per participant. Each classroom is taught by a local Israeli teacher and a teacher from abroad volunteering in the TALMA program. Of the teachers who took part in the program, a significant majority are convinced that it has contributed significantly to strengthening the students' English proficiency. Currently in its third year, the program has seen a record increase in demand.

The project is unprecedented and therefore organizers have applied for a Guinness World Record.The project was initiated in honor of Jerusalem and follows the Ministry of Education’s decision to designate the city of Jerusalem as its annual theme. The project is an initiative shared among the Parents Association, the Ministry of Education, Citypass, and a number of other bodies in the Municipality the Jerusalem Education Administration, the Department of Plastic Arts, and the Administration for Culture, Society, Sport, and Leisure of the Jerusalem Municipality.Mayor Nir Barkat emphasized that “Jerusalem is a city that brings all Israelis together.

This wonderful project is another creative and original way to act towards unity and a common language between the various sectors. A seed of unity planted at a young age will accompany these children for many years to come.”Yisrael Elyasaf, one of the project’s initiators and a representative of the Parents Association within Jerusalem’s education system, noted that “children educated in Jerusalem in ways of tolerance and respect for one another are the future, and the hope for a different Jerusalem, uniting and bringing people together, carrying its message throughout Israel and the whole world. This isn’t naivety or innocence but rather a sober outlook, knowing that change can only take place when it is started at an early age and with practical action”.Yaron Ravid, CEO of Citypass, Jerusalem’s Light Rail franchisee, said that “the project exhibiting children’s drawings on the light rail is another opportunity for us to support important social-community activity that unites and strengthens the capital city, as we have done during the year with various projects connecting us with the community. Showing the creative works of Jerusalem’s children on the light rail excites us, and will benefit the children and families as well as all those travelling on the light rail. We will continue to work together with communities in the city and do more good for Jerusalem.”Merav Sleiman, Superintendent-Coordinator for the Ministry of Education, explained that “kindergarten supervisors in the city of Jerusalem are proud to take part in this unique project, which enables the artistic expression of kindergarten children from all sectors of the city.”6/19/2017 9:00:00 PM

After the opening ceremony, guests went to the football field for a ribbon-cutting ceremony and inaugurated the field with a game of catch with the Pro Football Hall of Fame delegation. The Kraft Family Sports Campus, a multi-purpose sports center located in Emek Ha’Arazim, Jerusalem, was made possible with a $6 million gift from Robert Kraft and with sponsorship from Mifal HaPais and Toto. This significant contribution to advance sport in Jerusalem is part of the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem. In two weeks, the Campus will open to the public and be used for the 20th Maccabiah Games. The Kraft Family Sports Campus will be an integral part of Jerusalem's burgeoning sports renaissance, which includes the opening of many new arenas and dozens of international sporting events each year. The establishment of the Kraft Family Sports Campus is an unprecedented cornerstone of this renaissance, among other things, expanding the culture of U.S. football in Jerusalem, and serving as a complement to the existing Kraft Family Field in Sacher Park. "The Kraft Family Sports Campus is a central part of my vision for Jerusalem as an international capital of sport and athleticism,” said Mayor Barkat. “Years ago, I remember meeting my dear friend, Robert Kraft and his wife Myra, and we had an instant connection. We both understood the importance of Jerusalem and the importance of advancing sports in our city. Since then, Robert has been an unwavering partner in the growth and development of Jerusalem. This gift, which helps celebrate the 50th anniversary of Jerusalem's reunification, furthers Robert and his family’s commitment to the capital of Israel, and to enhancing sport and particularly football in Jerusalem."“The Kraft Family Sports Campus allows me to invest in two things that I have always been very passionate about My love of Israel and my support for youth athletics and team sports, especially American football,” said Kraft. “I fell in love with Israel on my first visit in 1963 and have been investing in its future ever since. I have seen the positive impact team sports can have, not just on the individuals who participate, but in the communities that support them. They help unify those who might otherwise be divided by cultural differences. Team athletics have proven to develop leadership, provide examples of success through teamwork and promote health and fitness. My family and I are proud to establish this large scale, multi-sports complex, which is the first of its kind in Jerusalem.”The Kraft Family Sports Campus is being established in collaboration with the Ministry of Culture and Sport, the Ministry of Jerusalem Affairs and Heritage, the Jerusalem Development Authority, the Jerusalem Foundation, and was developed by the Jerusalem Development Company – Moriah. The Campus includes soccer fields, a dual-use U.S. regulation football and soccer field, locker rooms and administrative offices, a central pedestrian thoroughfare, parking and an access road, with plans in the pipeline to add numerous additional facilities. Together with the American Football League in Israel, the new Kraft Family Sports Campus will further foster the enjoyment of football in Jerusalem. The campus will open to the public in two weeks for the 20th Maccabiah Games. Photo credit Jeki Levi 6/19/2017 9:00:00 PM

Jerusalem is First in the Country to Install a Modern Wireless Networkhttps://www.jerusalem.muni.il/en/Municipality/Municipal info/Pages/JerusalemModernWirelessNetwork.aspxJerusalem is First in the Country to Install a Modern Wireless Network<img alt=" " src="/Municipality/Msg_84/PublishingImages/waves.jpg?RenditionID=13" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /><p>​The innovative network will enable the installation of a camera system, control and emergency services, smart parking solutions, high-speed Internet for the municipal education system, free WIFI service throughout the city, and high-speed data communications. Mayor Barkat: “We are placing Jerusalem in line with the leading smart cities of the world.”</p>​The Jerusalem Municipality is the first authority in Israel to receive approval from the Ministry of Communications for the installation of an independent municipal wireless network. The wireless network will be based on millimeter wave technology, in order to avoid the installation of fiber optic and transmission lines that are expensive, take a long time to install, and are a hazard to the public.Thanks to the new wireless network, the city’s residents will enjoy especially high-speed data communications. The network will serve as the infrastructure for a smart city. Among the planned services for residents installation of a camera system, control systems, security, emergency and municipal order maintenance, smart parking solutions and traffic regulation, access to high-speed Internet for the city's educational system, control of street lights that will allow for significant financial savings, and free WiFi throughout the city.With the help of the system, that will includes HD and HD-4k cameras, we will be able to view hundreds of critical sites throughout the city in real time, activate forces, and control events more effectively. This is achieved by using the world's most advanced communications network to transfer high-quality video footage to municipal and security forces.The frequencies used by the network are completely free and safe to use. The system is also secure, and there is no risk of a privacy breach. The equipment used has an extremely low level of radiation - lower than a standard home router - thanks to the high frequency and narrow beam transmission.We plan to install the new municipal communications network within three months, and by the end of 2017, there will be dozens of active links.Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barket indicated that, “For one of the oldest cities in the world, we bring out the most innovative news in the country. This innovative technology, that will be installed in Jerusalem, and for the first time in Israel, will enable us to upgrade many services for residents, and will put us in line with the world's leading smart cities. "Eitan Barzelai, Head of the Economic and Technological Business Development Administration, added that, "this is a significant technological breakthrough in smart city applications. The implementation of the new technology in the city is an advanced solution to the fiber optic installation problem, which derives from Jerusalem’s unique geological structure, as opposed to many cities around the world. The Jerusalem Municipality adopts innovative technology that has proven itself worldwide, to build a communications infrastructure for a smart and safe city. The municipal communications network will improve security and service quality for residents, and at the same time, save a considerable amount in municipal expenses. "6/10/2017 9:00:00 PM

The project was designed by the Jerusalem Development Authority and built by Moriah with our support of the Ministry of Jerusalem and Heritage and the Jerusalem Municipality. The project cost an estimated NIS 13 million.Minister of Environmental Protection, Jerusalem and Heritage MK Zeev Elkin said “Jerusalem needs many more projects of this kind so that the children of the city and its environs and their families can come and enjoy themselves. On the eve of Jerusalem Day, marking the 50th anniversary of its unification, I wish you, dear children, and Jerusalem, a happy holiday. As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so too are parks and gardens around it!”Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat explained - “Arazim Park is part of the Jerusalem Park, which connects the city to nature, allowing the city’s residents and visitors to experience the natural vistas and unique heritage of Jerusalem. I invite the city’s residents and nature-lovers from all over the country to come and connect to the unique magical vista and nature of Jerusalem.”Moriah Jerusalem Development Corporation CEO Doron Noiwirt said that “completion of the second stage of the rehabilitation of Nahal Arazim and the dedication of the new playground in the park are another step forward in the urban development that has characterized Jerusalem in the past few years. Moriah is pleased to play a significant part in this important process, which is, first and foremost, intended to serve the residents of Jerusalem and its environs. To continue the rapid development of Jerusalem’s urban space, we have established an urban unit at Moriah’s Engineering Department, which advances urban projects in Jerusalem. We are talking about dozens of projects to develop parks, bicycle paths, playgrounds, neighborhood development and sports facilities, which will be implemented in cooperation with the public. Jerusalem is undergoing a real urban revolution with the development and upgrade of dozens of public open spaces throughout the city, in both its western and eastern sections.”The Jerusalem Development Authority stated - “This is another project to give accessibility to the nature that surrounds Jerusalem, which is just waiting for visitors from the city and elsewhere. What only ten years ago was considered to be a luxury, such as green areas near the home, has become the standard for the city’s residents. The establishment of centers of entertainment and recreation, such as this, is a complex subject, which requires not only the provision of comprehensive answers to visitors’ needs but also careful consideration of the unique vista and nature of Jerusalem.”5/26/2017 9:00:00 PM

The adjacent Or Ganim project on Uruguay Street and Upper Volta Street will provide 147 housing units in five buildings.</p>This week, the Jerusalem Local Planning and Building Commission approved the construction of 500 new housing units in two urban renewal plans on Stern Street and Uruguay Street in the Kiryat Hayovel neighborhood. According to the plans, 336 housing units in three high-rises on Stern Street will replace 102 existing housing units, and 147 housing units in five buildings on Uruguay Street will replace 28 existing housing units.The Marom Ganim plan (no. 409656) – vacate-and-build plan at 37-41 Stern StreetThis urban renewal plan covers an area of about seven dunams (1.75 acres), as a vacate-and-build project under our Master Plan for Kiryat Hayovel. The plan joins two other key plans on Stern Street, which the Local Planning Commission has already approved and which are in the advanced planning stages at the Jerusalem Regional Planning and Building Commission. Altogether the plans include 460 housing units.Under the Marom Ganim plan, the current residential buildings will be demolished and three 25-30-storey high-rises will be built on the site, facing Stern Street and Gaoni Street. The plan also proposes widening Stern Street and increasing space for public buildings, commercial space, and space for the three new residential high-rises.When construction is completed, 234 new housing units will bring the number of units at the site to 336. The plan also proposes 276 sq.m. of public space and a commercial façade. The Local Planning Commission recommended to the Regional Planning Commission to deposit the plan, subject to certain improvements, the most important of which is to increase the limits of the plans and to introduce a road connecting Gaoni Street to the intersection of Chaim Kolitz Street and Aharon Shulov Street. The Local Planning Commission also recommends widening Gaoni Street from the intersection with Stern Street to the roundabout at the end of the street, in order to cope with the traffic and in the future with public transport leading to Kolitz Street. Or Ganim Plan (no. 345298) – vacate-and-build on Uruguay Street and Upper Volta StreetThis urban renewal plan covers a five-dunam (1.25 acres) site as a vacate-and-build project under our Master Plan for Kiryat Hayovel.Under the plan, three existing residential buildings will be demolished and three 11-storey and two 8-9-storey buildings, with a total of 147 housing units, will be built on the site. All the buildings will share a parking level and common services. The plan also proposes a lot for a public building with a center for the elderly, a pedestrian path connecting Uruguay Street and Upper Volta Street, and a series of parking levels along its length.For this plan too, the Local Planning Commissions recommended to the Regional Planning Commission to deposit the plan, subject to certain improvements, including the inclusion of public space to the building site in the parking area and increasing the public and private space. Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat said "The key to success of vacate-and-build projects is organization by the residents. When the initiative comes from the ground, it is our duty as the Municipality to give the residents all the support they need, so that the project will be implemented. Jerusalem is the first city where an Urban Renewal Administration has been established. It is advancing vacate-and-build projects, which will add approximately 9,000 housing units to the city, of which more than 1,000 housing units are part of plans that have already been approved. In this way, we will be able to keep young couples in Jerusalem."5/26/2017 9:00:00 PM

Cornerstone Laid for the Jerusalem Art Campushttps://www.jerusalem.muni.il/en/Municipality/Municipal info/Pages/Art_Campus.aspxCornerstone Laid for the Jerusalem Art Campus<img alt="" src="/Municipality/Msg_84/PublishingImages/JerusalemArtCampus.JPG?RenditionID=13" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /><p>​Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat and representatives of the Kirsch family laid the cornerstone for the Jerusalem Art Campus today, which will be named after the family. It will gather together the professional schools for performing arts and film currently operating in Jerusalem.</p>​This week, the cornerstone-laying ceremony was held for the Kirsch Family Jerusalem Art Campus, presided over by Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat; the donor family, which donated $50 million to fund the project; the UJA-Federation of New York leadership, and additional members of the project.The campus will gather together the professional schools for performing arts and film currently operating in Jerusalem, including, the Nissan Nativ Acting Studio, the Sam Spiegel Film & Television School, the Visual Theatre School, and the Center for Middle Eastern Music. The campus will be built on a total area of approximately 10,000 sq. meters adjacent to the Gerard Behar Center. This is the first initiative of its kind in Israel—in which a local authority constructs a building under whose roof all professional schools of higher theatrical and film arts will operate.The schools will not be required to pay rent, and will contribute only to general maintenance, something which will facilitate their administration and encourage the redistribution of their resources to professional development and enriching the range of content on the syllabus.The campus will enable the professional schools to cooperate with one another, something that will contribute to its development as a national center for higher learning of theatrical and film arts. It will be open all day, and during the evenings there will be a range of performances for the broader public. Mayor Nir Barkat emphasized that “the establishment of the Kirsch Family Jerusalem Arts Campus, along with Beit Mazia—which we constructed for theater groups—as well as the Betzalel campus located at the Russian Compound and the Agron dorms that will soon be opened and will host hundreds of students—will allow artists to enjoy life in the city center and contribute to its development, and for residents and visitors to enjoy a fruitful and lively capital. The city’s center is changing!”Linda Mirales, a representative of the Kirsch family, stated “Our family has always been committed to Israel and to the Jewish Federation. It is our privilege to be involved in such an important project that will contribute greatly to Jerusalem’s students over the coming generations.”The director of the Jewish Federation of New York, Mr. Eric Goldstein, thanked the Kirsch family for its significant involvement, and emphasized the organization’s commitment to continue to support and strengthen the city of Jerusalem, Israel, and the Jewish people “No one is prouder than we are for the ability and possibility of helping to establish a campus for the arts in Jerusalem, especially in a year when the Jewish Federation of New York is celebrating the hundredth anniversary of its establishment. The campus will contribute to a lively future for Jerusalem and will strengthen its standing as a leading artistic and cultural city in the world. For many years, we have supported the State of Israel and the city of Jerusalem, and we are thankful for the opportunity to continue the strong cooperation with the city of Jerusalem and with the city’s mayor, Nir Barkat.”Reviving the City Center with our PartnersThe initiative is led by Jerusalem Mayor, Nir Barkat, as part of the realization of his vision for rejuvenating and enlivening the city’s center, making it more attractive and into a vibrant cultural center.The new campus will include a large parking lot with 415 spots, constructed by Eden—the Jerusalem Center Development Company—with the goal of affordable parking for students and revelers in the area. The construction of the parking lot is also designed to ease the parking shortage and traffic in the city center, and is part of a much wider process that Eden is leading, aiming to create additional parking lots in the area. The Jerusalem Municipality is leading the project in cooperation with the Ministry for Jerusalem and Heritage, the Jerusalem Development Authority, the Eden Company, the Jerusalem Fund, the Jewish Federation of New York, and the Kirsch family.The campus building will redefine the city center and develop cooperation between the existing institutions and those that will be established in the area in the future Gerard Behar, Beit Mazia, and the “Betzalel” Academy for Arts and Design in the City Center—who will together constitute a series of cultural and academic institutions.The concentration of the academic institutions in the city center will afford artists an urban, communal and an eclectic environment. The students will thus be able to enjoy life in the city center and contribute to its development. In addition, residents will be able to enjoy a fruitful and lively cultural center, which will attract visitors and tourists—as should be expected from a capital city.Photographer Jacky Levi5/8/2017 9:00:00 PM
Breakthrough: 1,000 New Classrooms Will Be Built in the Cityhttps://www.jerusalem.muni.il/en/Municipality/Municipal info/Pages/BreakthroughNewClassrooms.aspxBreakthrough: 1,000 New Classrooms Will Be Built in the City<img alt="" src="/Municipality/Msg_84/PublishingImages/class.jpg?RenditionID=13" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /><p>​With the investment of ₪1 billion, construction will begin on 1,000 new classrooms across Jerusalem. Barkat: “The economic model that we created, with out-of-the-box thinking—is a breakthrough that represents great news for residents. It is our duty to provide every student with the proper conditions for studying and success.”</p>​The outline initiated by the Jerusalem Municipality for constructing 1,000 new, standardized classrooms across Jerusalem has begun, in order to provide a solution to the existing lack of classroom space across all sectors of the city.Over many years, a significant lack of thousands of classrooms has been created in the city, as a result of the lack of State investment and ignoring the city’s natural growth, which stands at 186 classrooms per year in the country’s largest education system, serving close to 300,000 students. We mapped the system and found that, more than 3,800 classrooms are currently lacking around 505 in the general sector, around 1,938 in the Arab sector, and around 1,410 in the Haredi sector. Closing the gap entirely is estimated to cost around 5 million NIS.The current breakthrough is possible as a result of a unique economic model initiated by Mayor Barkat. The fundraising of 1 billion NIS from a number of sources of financing, led by Bank Leumi, was used to construct the first 1,000 classes. Construction of the permanent classrooms will eventually save around 140 million NIS per year, which the municipality currently invests every year from its budget for temporary buildings and preparing them for use. Following approval of the program outline, the Ministry of the Interior approved the first step for the loan this week, to the tune of 370 million NIS, and received approval from Bank Leumi for the full amount to allow construction of 370 new classrooms immediately.Under the guidance of the mayor, we will focus on advancing and shortening the processes for accelerating construction. Led by the City Manager, a professional project for planning, carrying out, and financing the construction of thousands of needed kindergarten and school classrooms was initiated. We established a special administration for building the classrooms, which will operate under the Moriya company (the Municipality’s subsidiary) to identify land to plan and construct classrooms across the city. The local authority is working alongside it, led by the Local Government Economic Services company, which manages construction endeavors for the city’s educational institutions. It intends to act to shorten planning and construction times in order to complete the project within 1.5-2 years—approximately a year less than standard practice. The new classrooms will be built alongside laboratories, libraries, activity spaces, and more.Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat noted that “I decided not to give in to the bureaucracy and not to wait for a miracle to bring money from the government to build classrooms. Jerusalem’s students deserve more. The economic model that we created, with out-of-the-box thinking, for constructing the classrooms is groundbreaking and is great news for the residents.

Budget Battle Gets Results: The Sanitation Reform is Underwayhttps://www.jerusalem.muni.il/en/Municipality/Municipal info/Pages/BudgetBattleGetsResults.aspxBudget Battle Gets Results: The Sanitation Reform is Underway<img alt="" src="/Municipality/Msg_84/PublishingImages/CleaningReform.jpg?RenditionID=13" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /><p>​₪13 million will be added every year, as well as 100 new sanitation workers and 12 teams that will guarantee waste removal at a frequency of up to 6 times per week. 400 underground storage containers will replace the green trash bins.</p>​Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat announced that the ₪13 million Sanitation Reform that he initiated will begin in the coming weeks. It is a very significant program approved over the last few years with the goal of immediately bringing about an improvement to Jerusalem’s cleanliness.Among the planned activities of the sanitation reform• The addition of 100 new sanitation workers to the sanitation system, of which 63 will be manual sweepers in the city’s neighborhoods.• The addition of around 30 employees in 12 new waste-collection teams that will work in new routes. They will ensure that trash is collected at a frequency of up to 6 times per week, with waste being collected twice per day in high-traffic public and commercial areas that have high concentrations of waste.• An additional daily back-up team will be in place, whose role is to provide on-the-spot solutions according to need.These are joining a program that already began a number of months ago, through which the traditional green trash bins were removed from neighborhoods and replaced with 400 underground storage containers. The containers will significantly improve the quality of life and cleanliness, as well as the carrying out of garbage disposal. As of today, more than 100 underground containers have been constructed in the city’s neighborhoods.This is the program’s first step, which is expected to expand with the goal of leading to the recognizable improvement of the cleaning and sanitation services currently provided. The reform was formulated in cooperation with the Operations Administration, the Sanitation Department, and Head of the Sanitation Workers’ Union, Gili Gorni.Mayor Barkat emphasized that “we have guaranteed that in the 50th year of Jerusalem’s reunification, we will embark upon many programs that will change the face of the city and which will tangibly improve its quality of life, thanks to the budgets that we have obtained. The program approved today proves more than anything that we are keeping our word. The cleaning and sanitation services are an important part of the quality of life of the city’s residents, and I am sure that the carrying out of this program will contribute greatly to the city’s quality of life and will improve the cityscape.”4/25/2017 9:00:00 PM
New: A Sports & Swimming Centerhttps://www.jerusalem.muni.il/en/Municipality/Municipal info/Pages/NewSportsSwimmingCenter.aspxNew: A Sports & Swimming Center<img alt="" src="/Municipality/Msg_84/PublishingImages/SportCenterTalpiyot-1.jpg?RenditionID=13" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /><p>​The center was established with a financial investment of ₪35 million. Mayor Barkat: “This is only one of seven new community sports and swimming centers that are planned and constructed for the benefit of the public.”</p>​Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat; President of the Jerusalem Fund, Johanna Arbib; and CEO of Mifal Hapais, Gen. (Res.) Uzi Dayan, inaugurated the Sports & Swimming center in East Talpiyot. The center was planned by architect Nachman Etstein and has three floors, including a fitness center, lobby, facilities and systems, rooms for clubs, dressing rooms, cafeteria, seating and coffee areas, offices, auxiliary rooms, and more. The swimming pool at the center extends 25 meters (half-Olympic length).The sports and swimming center will form part of the services provided by the East Talpiyot Community Center, will partially become the center of neighborhood life, and will be an important component of the services actively provided in the neighborhood. It is located next to Seligsberg High School, and will serve the students and the neighborhood’s residents through its various activities. The establishment of the sports and swimming center was made possible following a donation by the family of Alan Greenberg in the United States, one of the Jerusalem Fund’s veteran donors who established many projects in Jerusalem (among which are the sports center in Gilo, the swimming pool in Gilo, and the sports complex in East Talpiyot). The construction stands as part of our work increasing the urban investment in cultural and leisure institutions in the city. The center was built in cooperation with the Jerusalem Fund and with financing from Mifal Hapais and the Jerusalem Fund—along with the Municipality.In addition, the construction of the sports and swimming center is part of the Municipality’s activities to increase the urban investment in cultural and leisure institutions in the city.Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat said that “the sports and swimming center established in East Talpiyot is one of seven new community sports and swimming centers that are now being planned and constructed for the benefit of the public in the neighborhoods of East Talpiyot, Pisgat Zeev, Ramot, the German Colony, Beit Hanina, Har Nof, and in the sports complex southwest of the city. These Jerusalem sports and swimming centers will form a quality base for leisure activities for all ages close to home, and will serve to draw in young families. They will form an economic anchor for the community centers, and will increase the circle of participants in community and social activities in the neighborhoods. This is another step that we are making for improving the quality of life of Jerusalem’s residents. Over the last few years, we have invested many resources in the city’s neighborhoods and in the vicinity of people’s homes, and we will continue to act in order to advance additional sports, culture, and leisure projects for the benefit of the city’s residents.”Johanna Arbib, president of the Jerusalem Fund, noted that “the Jerusalem Fund has operated for 50 years to improve the quality of life of the city’s residents. The pool joins the Jerusalem Fund’s investment in additional aspects of East Talpiyot, and serves as a magnet for young families to the neighborhood and for many residents who will be able to enjoy leisure and sports activities. This is also a way to strengthen the community center, something in which we see great importance.”CEO of Mifal Hapais, Gen. (Res.) Uzi Dayan, clarified that “the swimming pool encourages an active way of life and teaches self-discipline. Mifal Hapais is now informing local authorities regarding the additional contribution of ₪1.2 billion to the local authorities. It is a joy to see that the money has been used for the benefit of Israeli society as a whole.”The establishment of the sports and swimming center in Armon HaNatziv joins the voluminous urban activity to increase the supply of sports and leisure facilities in Jerusalem. Over the last few years, Teddy Stadium was renovated, construction was completed on the Pais Arena basketball court, the skate park was built, and construction was completed on Park HaMesilah. Dozens of fitness facilities were established in locations throughout the city in Gan Sacher and Gan HaPa’amon public parks.4/25/2017 9:00:00 PM
For the first time in 50 years: Jerusalem’s territory grewhttps://www.jerusalem.muni.il/en/Municipality/Municipal info/Pages/Jerusalem’s_territory_grew.aspxFor the first time in 50 years: Jerusalem’s territory grew<img alt="" src="/Municipality/Msg_84/PublishingImages/bniya1.jpg?RenditionID=14" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /><p>​The Ministry of Interior transferred land for new residential neighborhood in Jerusalem, which will have around 2,000 new residential units.</p>​250 new hectares of land were recently added to Jerusalem’s control following a multi-year process, which will allow the Municipality to establish a new residential neighborhood in Jerusalem with around 2,000 new residential units. In 2009, the Border Committee of the Interior Ministry met for the first time to discuss the possibility of transferring 250 hectares of land, adjacent to the Arnona neighborhood, from the Mateh Yehuda Regional Council and Kibbutz Ramat Rachel to the control of the Jerusalem Municipality. The land was used in the past as agricultural space for the Ramat Rachel Kibbutz.Recently, the Municipality received an official letter from the Minister of the Interior heralding the transfer of the land to the city’s control. Following this, and in collaboration with the Ministry of Housing and the Israel Lands Authority, we are planning to build the “Mordot Arnona” (Arnona Hillside) neighborhood, which will include more than 2,000 residential units.The approval of the program for the residential neighborhood and the transfer of land to the control of Jerusalem, afford us and the government authorities access for developing and marketing the neighborhood. The program has already been approved and was validated by the regional committee, and is currently being marketed, a process which is expected to last around a year—before building permits are issued.Mayor Nir Barkat noted that "we are strengthening and increasing Jerusalem's size. In the 50th year since its unification, it continues to grow and to develop. The establishment of a new neighborhood will allow us to attract young families to the city, to expand our response to the demand for housing in the city, and, of course, to strengthen Israel's capital."3/21/2017 10:00:00 PM
Four new dog parks in Pisgat Ze’evhttps://www.jerusalem.muni.il/en/Municipality/Municipal info/Pages/FournewdogparksinPisgatZe’ev.aspxFour new dog parks in Pisgat Ze’ev<img alt="" src="/Municipality/Msg_84/PublishingImages/dog.jpg?RenditionID=14" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /><p>​Around ₪1 million will be invested in establishing four new leisure areas for dogs in Pisgat Ze’ev, including new grassy areas, seating areas, shaded areas, trash cans, fountains, and dog-training facilities.</p>​The Parks division of the Department for City Beautification, with the help of the Moriah Company and the Ministry of Housing, plans to establish four new parks for releasing dogs in Pisgat Zeev. This is part of Mayor Nir Barkat’s policy to upgrade playgrounds in the city with the investment of tens of millions of shekels.The planning process for establishing the parks began a number of years ago, and work just recently began on four parks that will be added to the 13 existing parks across the city – for the benefit of four-legged companions and their owners. The locating and planning of the parks was done together with the community councils in a process involving the public.On Gal Street, the establishment of a grassy area is planned, as well as benches for sitting, shaded areas, trash cans, dog-training facilities, and a fountain. Next to Moriya Square, in central Pisgat Zeev, there are two locations for releasing dogs that are planned for upgrading by adding grassy areas, seating areas with benches and trash cans, a fountain, and new trees. The fourth park is located in eastern Pisgat Zeev. The park will be fenced, seating areas and fountains will be built, and it will also include dog-training facilities.In addition, in the coming years an additional ten dog parks are planned for construction. Upgrades are also expected in existing dog parks that are spread across the city in the Beit HaKerem, Gilo, French Hill, and City Center neighborhoods.3/20/2017 10:00:00 PM
