2018 Jerusalem Winner Marathon Launchedhttps://www.jerusalem.muni.il/en/Municipality/Municipal info/Pages/2018JerusalemWinnerMarathonLaunched.aspx2018 Jerusalem Winner Marathon Launched<img alt=" " src="/Municipality/Msg_84/PublishingImages/MARATO2018.jpg?RenditionID=14" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /><p>​Mayor Nir Barkat: Jerusalem is preparing to host a record number of 10,000 tourists during the Jerusalem Winner Marathon</p>​The Jerusalem Winner Marathon will take place on March 9, 2018Over 30,000 runners will participate in the 8th Jerusalem Marathon, which is expected to include a record-breaking number of approximately 4,000 runners from abroad. This year's marathon is also expected to shatter the record for revenues gained by the city from the marathon at over 15 million NIS The guest of honor, who will also be running the 10-km course Olympic medalist and long-distance running world champion Haile Gebrselassie from Ethiopia Last week (Tuesday, 13/02/18), Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat launched the 2018 Jerusalem Winner Marathon with a special event at Kedma Restaurant – against the backdrop of the Tower of David and the walls of the Old City. The event saw the premiere of the Jerusalem Winner Marathon's special pasta dish, prepared by international chef Shalom Kadosh, Yakir Jerusalem. Chef Kadosh oversaw the preparation of the pasta dishes for the event, inspired by the recipes of Israel's president Ruvi Rivlin and his grandson Matan, Sports and Culture Minister Miri Regev, Mayor Nir Barkat, and Olympic medalist Ori Sasson. Registration data shows that Jerusalem is the city for Israel's marathon runners! The vast majority of runners in the full marathon course – 42.2 km – are Jerusalemites, three times the number of runners from Haifa, who rank second, followed by runners from Modi'in, Tel Aviv and Kfar Saba. The average age of runners taking on the full course is 43, whereas the average age of runners participating in the 10 km track is 32. The data further indicates that most registrants (41%) are aged 30-49, 26% are under the age of 20 and 20% of the runners are over 50 (with the oldest participant being 82 years old!). The gender distribution between women and men is slightly weighted in men's favor, at 57% to 43%, with the average age of male runners being 35 and female, 32. In total, over 30,000 people are expected to run in this year's marathon. The number of tourists expected to stay overnight in the capital over the marathon weekend will be approximately 10,000. The registration data, compared to the parallel data of last year, indicate an increase in the number of participants from abroad. From among those tourists who will arrive in Israel, the Jerusalem Municipality anticipates a record number of actual runners – approximately 4,000 people from about 50 countries, among them China, the United States, Germany, Poland, Portugal, Lithuania, and for the first time, representatives from Anguilla (located in the Northern Atlantic) and Réunion (a French Island located in the Indian Ocean). The list of cities who have sent the largest number of runners for the marathon is led by Hong Kong, followed by Los Angeles, Beijing and London. One of the runners who will participate in the unique marathon, which passes through the capital's landscapes and heritage sites, is none other than legendary long-distance runner Haile Gebrselassie. Gebrselassie holds two Olympic gold medals in 10,000-meter running and four world titles for that same distance, and he was the first in the world to break the 204 record for the marathon run. His participation in the marathon serves as an impressive recognition of the Jerusalem Winner Marathon's prestige and importance in the eyes of the entire world. "The Jerusalem Winner Marathon is a national sports event, which attracts not only families and sportspersons from Israel, but also serves as a focal point for foreign tourism," said Mayor Nir Barkat, who runs in the event himself. He added, "thousands of tourists from 50 countries around the world are coming to experience the marathon as an unparalleled sport event and international festival, and come to experience Jerusalem as a top tourist destination." Barkat noted that this year, the Jerusalem Winner Marathon is expected to provide a record revenue of 15 million NIS for the city's businesses, hotels and culture and entertainment institution – in addition to over NIS 60 million, which the marathon has earned the city over the past seven years. Registration for the marathon will close on Thursday, 22.02.18. This year, there will be six courses, offering a full marathon (42.2 km), half-marathon (21.1 km), 10 km, 5 km, a families race (1.7 km) and a communities race (800 meters) for people with special needs. This year, the Jerusalem Municipality has decided to connect the many participants arriving from abroad and from all over Israel to the city of Jerusalem using a new and unique social project. Preparations for this year's marathon saw the launch of the "guest runner" project – a new social project allowing Israeli participants to host, in their home, tourist runners from around the world, who will be coming to take part in Israel's national marathon. This is a new initiative by the Jerusalem Municipality and the Sports Division, through which local and international marathon runners will have the option to visit the marathon's Facebook page (in either Hebrew or English) and provide their general information as either a host or a guest. The production team will then facilitate the initial contact between the two parties via email, enabling them to contact each other. According to Itzik Kornfein, Manager of the Sports Division in the Jerusalem Municipality "The initiative is intended to allow marathon runners from abroad to experience Jerusalem in the most unique fashion possible – through its cordial and welcoming residents. I invite residents of Jerusalem, who are going to run in the marathon, to open their homes and hearts and to take part in the unique experience of hosting a running colleague from elsewhere in the world." Toto Lottery Chairman Yossi Pilos "In recent years, sports in Jerusalem have enjoyed unprecedented growth, aided by the Toto Lottery and led by Mayor Nir Barkat. The Jerusalem Winner Marathon is a clear example of a sports event which, in recent years, has crossed boundaries and sectors. Runners from all over the world come to enjoy the magical vistas of Jerusalem, alongside social friendly societies from all sectors, who, through the sport, raise money and awareness for their causes. Not to mention the thousands of runners and families in the popular courses, which turn the marathon event into a big celebration of sports, creating connections within the community and leading to improvement in residents' quality of life and health. When I speak of connection between sports and the community at large – the Jerusalem Winner Marathon is the clearest example!" Michal Portman, CEO of New Balance Israel "The Jerusalem Winner Marathon brings together runners from Israel and around the world for a challenging, touristic and spiritual experience. For the sixth year in a row now, New Balance will be a partner and sponsor of the marathon, and this year marks the first time in Israel that an official marathon shoe series is being launched to accompany the marathon the "New Balance 800" series. The decision to present a shoe series to accompany the Jerusalem Marathon arises from our familiarity with the runners' needs and the desire to provide an advanced professional and high-quality response to the entire runner community in Israel. This is an innovation in the world of marathons, and as a company advocating innovation, we are happy to again be the ones who introduce this development. This shoe series will provide each of the runners with a safe, comfortable and pleasant running experience, among the stunning vistas of 'the city that makes all people friends.'"

Reducing Pollution in Jerusalemhttps://www.jerusalem.muni.il/en/Municipality/Municipal info/Pages/ReducingPollutioninJerusalem.aspxReducing Pollution in Jerusalem<img alt=" " src="/Municipality/Msg_84/PublishingImages/hair.JPG?RenditionID=14" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /><p>​The Jerusalem Municipality is turning the City Center into a “Clean Air” Area.<br>Last week, the City Council Approved a Municipal Bylaw to Reduce Transportation-Caused Air Pollution<br>Barkat: “The new law will improve the health and quality of life of residents”</p>​The Jerusalem Municipality is turning the city center into a “clean air” area, in order to improve the health and quality of life of residents. Last Wednesday, December 27, the City Council approved a municipal bylaw which is intended to allow the enforcement of a “reduced emission area” in the city center.The bylaw is intended to restrict the entry of heavy and polluting vehicles into the city center. Cameras and a computerized system will ensure increased enforcement and allow for the analysis of data through the vehicle’s license plate.The area under the plan includes the city center, from Haneviim St. to the north, Strauss St. and King George St. from the west, Agron St. from the south, and Heil HaHandasa St. from the east, including all roads bordering the area.Additionally, six months after the plan is first implemented, the Municipality intends to expand the plan by turning the Ultra Orthodox business center area into a reduced emission area as well. Introducing other areas in the plan in the future is also being considered.The decision will lead to a significant improvement in the quality of life and air quality in the city center, reduce transportation loads, and turn the center of Jerusalem into one of the areas with the cleanest air – “mountain air as clear as wine”.The plan will be implemented in two stagesIn the first stage, beginning on July 1, 2018, drivers will be sent messages informing them that polluting vehicles are prohibited from entering the reduced emission area; and in the second stage, beginning on January 1, 2019, the prohibition will enter into effect, as will the enforcement of the bylaw, through “optional court appearance” tickets.At the request of the Ministry of Transport, and with the consent of the Director of the Ministry of Environmental Protection, public transportation has been given the opportunity to operate for an additional half year, such that the prohibition against the entry of public vehicles into the reduced emission area will enter into effect on July 1, 2019.The proposed bylaw provides definitions of the terms “reduced emission area” and “polluting vehicle.””Reduced emission area” - An area of roads, the entry to which is marked with road signs specifying restrictions on entry for polluting vehicles. “Polluting vehicle” - Any vehicle weighing over 3.5 tons, containing a diesel engine, with a vehicle registration year until 2005; excluding vehicles in which a particle filter has been installed. In other words, heavy diesel vehicles (over 3.5 tons) will not be permitted to enter the city center area if the year of registration is 2005 or earlier, unless a particle filter has been installed in the vehicle. It should be noted that the proposed bylaw does not apply, in the current stage, to private vehicles (weighing under 3.5 tons).As part of the Municipality’s efforts to improve the environmental and air conditions in the city, on August 30, 2016, the City Council approved an updated multi-year plan to reduce transportation-caused pollution in Jerusalem, including a decision to declare a “reduced emissions area” in central Jerusalem. The above included an agreement that stipulated that the Ministry of Environmental Protection will provide assistance to the Municipality in the amount of NIS 5 million for the current plan, as well as an additional NIS 5 million to expand the plan and to build nighttime parking lots for public transportation, including electrical charging infrastructure for buses, by the end of September 2018.Additional information on the Municipality’s efforts to reduce air pollutionThe Jerusalem Municipality is acting on many fronts to reduce air pollution in the capital. The construction of the light rail system in the city, and the reduction of entry of private vehicles into the city center, have led to energy savings and reduction of fuel use, as has the implementation of a patrol unit to identify polluting vehicles, which is working to take vehicles that pollute above the permitted standard off the road. The Municipality has installed hundreds of bicycle parking facilities throughout the city, as part of the program to encourage bicycle use and reduce private vehicle use. Additionally, the Municipality is developing bike paths throughout the city, which are leading to a reduction in the use of polluting energy, and is operating a system of shuttles to encourage employees to forgo the use of their private vehicles to get to work. The Municipality has also installed solar energy-powered street lighting fixtures, and has installed solar panels on the rooftops of public buildings and schools in the city, in order to generate green energy and reduce the use of polluting materials.Mayor of Jerusalem, Nir Barkat “Transportation is the main source of air pollution in city centers and population centers. Air pollution endangers the population and leads to an increase in respiratory, cardiovascular and arterial diseases, while also increasing the risk of cancer and early death. The new bylaw will improve the health and quality of life of residents.”12/31/2017 10:00:00 PM

It will run along a short and very efficient route – from the Ammunition Hill light railway station, through the Government Center in East Jerusalem, President Aharon Katzir Street, Yitzhak Hanadiv / Wadi Joz, the Seven Arches Observatory and the Mount of Olives. It will return through via Yitzhak Hanadiv / Martin Buber, Hebrew University Blvd. near Mount Scopus, and will end at the Ammunition Hill light railway station.The new line will be integrated into the transportation system we are developing, and will connect the light rail to the cable car that will reach the Mount of Olives. Experts from the Jerusalem Transportation Planning team will monitor its optimal operation and will implement improvements according to the situation on the ground. In addition, other transportation improvements designed to improve and streamline traffic in the in the area are expected.Mayor of Jerusalem Nir Barkat emphasized that, "The Mount of Olives is a major tourist attraction in Jerusalem, and the home of many residents. Each year, millions of tourists from Israel and abroad visit the attractions on the Mount, and their need for adequate public transportation has become very vital. I am certain that thanks to the new line, many more visitors will come to the Mount of Olives and visit its magnificent sites. I would like to thank Minister of Transportation Israel Katz for his assistance and support in advancing this new line and its approval.12/12/2017 10:00:00 PM
Only in Jerusalem – An Educational Innovation Accelerator for the Arab Sectorhttps://www.jerusalem.muni.il/en/Municipality/Municipal info/Pages/EducationalInnovation.aspxOnly in Jerusalem – An Educational Innovation Accelerator for the Arab Sector<img alt=" " src="/Municipality/Msg_84/PublishingImages/TeacherDay2017.jpeg?RenditionID=14" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /><p>​Our educational innovation organization, "Beta Educators", along with PresenTense, encourages the educational staff to implement innovative initiatives, and provides them with the professional and technical tools needed for implementation.</p>​Last week, the Jerusalem Educational Administration (JEA) launched an educational innovation accelerator in East Jerusalem, called Yalla Innovation (Let's Go Innovation). The accelerator will allow educators in East Jerusalem to implement innovative initiatives and dreams in the field of education. Through the program, educators who apply will receive financial assistance and professional tools.The accelerator is yet another Beta Educators project, our educational innovation organization which operates cooperation with PresenTense. The cost of the project is NIS 140,000, and it is the first of its kind in Israel. The goal of the project is to encourage principals and teachers to renew their teaching methods, refresh their lessons, reduce gaps and create better education in East Jerusalem.100 educators from official and unofficial schools attended the launch event. Ten schools presented initiatives which have already been implemented in their schools. For instance, the principal of the Al-Bakriya "B" Special Education School, Mr. Majdi Issawat, presented an application he developed for his students, which helps them learn how to manage their way around. The interactive application provides access to basic information and answers questions which are not trivial to his students, such as, how to get on a bus and pay, how to tie shoelaces, etc. Beta Educators provides Mr. Issawat with professional guidance, such as an application programmer, a graphic designer, development hours for the initiative and implementation support.The new accelerator is another part of the revolution being led by Mayor Nir Barkat, and which aims to provide equal opportunities and narrow the gaps in the educational system in East Jerusalem, through the investment of tens of millions of shekels. Last year we built 79 new classrooms in East Jerusalem, and we have secured a loan of NIS 1 billion for the construction of an addition 840 classrooms in the next four years. Three new schools have been built, including the first music and arts high school of its kind in Israel.There has also been a 14% increase in students studying in the program for Israeli matriculation, with these students numbering 5,500. The program for equal opportunity and gap reduction in the East Jerusalem education system includes additional enrichment hours, promoting innovation and initiative projects and including extended school days in all municipal high schools in East Jerusalem (including eight other schools).12/12/2017 10:00:00 PM

Klein, AIFL President.Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat said, "It is a great privilege to accept the Partners for Democracy Award from the America-Israel Friendship League alongside my dear friend Michael Bloomberg.

My close friendship with Michael Bloomberg over the years has resulted in best practices and joint action for Israel and the United States. ""The support for Israel throughout the world is diminishing; sadly, this is also true within the Jewish community in the U.S. Further, despite recent events, which clearly demonstrate that the war on terror is a worldwide struggle, Israel continues to lose international support and impact, including with its traditional supporters. We thank Michael R. Bloomberg and Mayor Nir Barkat for their outstanding contribution to the world and to the Jewish people." said Kenneth J. Bialkin, AIFL Chairman.

Also, as stated, "I Love JLM" puts Jerusalem in line with other capitals of love all over the world.Mayor Nir Barkat emphasized that "Everyone loves Jerusalem - and Jerusalem loves everyone - the new installation symbolizes the unique place Jerusalem has in each and every one, and I invite the city's residents, visitors and tourists to visit Jerusalem, to spend time here and to photograph themselves by the special installation." After last year, when we decided to put love on the map - this year we decided to put love in the center. According to the Jerusalem artist chosen to create the installation, Yarel Yair, "The choice to design the installation in a unique way compared to other cities around the world stems from the desire to present the uniqueness of Jerusalem, with inspiration from modern urban works around the world and similar installations in Amsterdam, New York and Toronto. It attempts to communicate with the roots and the glorious past of the city of Jerusalem. "The choice of placing the love installation in Zion Square was made following the activities led by the Eden Company to encourage and nurture the art, culture and leisure scene in the renewed city center of Jerusalem.Deputy CEO of Eden (Jerusalem Economic Development Company), Lior Bar Dor, noted that "this is another initiative which is part of the upgrading of public spaces in Jerusalem and their transformation into an active, attractive experience.
