Let's Celebrate the Tishrei Holidays Together in Jerusalem!
"Selichot" tours, festivals, shows, the Mayor's Sukkah, the Jerusalem March, and other events for the whole family throughout the city
The preparations for events during the month of the Tishrei holiday period are in full swing! Jerusalem, the "Selichot" capital of Israel, destination of pilgrims, is full of events, including celebrations and other activities, and the Jerusalem Municipality has prepared an entire month for visitors, including dozens of events, such as festivals, celebrations, and an annual march by participants from around the world during the intermediate days of Sukkot.
The Municipality of Jerusalem invites the public - parents and children, grandparents and other family members from all over the country - to visit the unique capital city, with its combination of the holy and the secular, perfect mountain air, and even a little coolness in the evenings (don't forget to bring something warm to wear!), and enjoy this time of year, including Selichot performances by top artists all over the city; poetry, prayers and singing in the synagogues in the city's neighborhoods; art and culture festivals; the 68th Jerusalem March; sports events, and more.
The events during Tishrei include:
• "Selichot Yerushalayim" at the Sultan's Pool - David D'or hosts Shlomi Shabbat, Ehud Banai, Eden Hasson and Mosh Ben Ari
• "Selichot Rishonot" with singer Yitzhak Meir at the International Convention Center
• Selichot performance in Safra Square, featuring Jerusalem Orchestra East & West
• "Elul" – Selichot performance - Yishai Rivo hosts Natan Goshen at the Sultan's Pool
• The Mayor of Jerusalem's Sukkah, the largest Sukkah in the world, in Safra Square
• The largest "four-species" Sukkot market in Israel
• The 68th annual Jerusalem March during the intermediate days of Sukkot
In a statement, the Jerusalem Municipality said: "The capital of Israel celebrates the Tishrei holidays in a big way! The Jerusalem Municipality invites all residents of the city, as well as visitors, to come and enjoy the dozens of events, shows, prayers and celebrations of the beginning of the Jewish year in Jerusalem. Happy New Year!"
