‘Jerusalem residents are resilient’

The past few weeks in Jerusalem have been a real challenge for families who live here and visiting tourists. With the current wave of terrorism, many people aren’t sure if they should continue their regular routines or stay at home and wait for the situation to calm down.

The Jerusalem Foundation has taken a proactive role in ensuring the capital’s cultural institutions and community centers are running as usual and providing special activities for residents in a secure environment – working together with the municipality to create the Jerusalem Emergency Campaign, which is funding special opening hours and subsidized activities for city residents.

I spoke with Jerusalem Foundation president Yohanna Arbib-Perugia to learn more about the campaign and how it will affect the city.
