Videos and photos of the International Festival of Light in Jerusalem

Hi Everyone!

Last night, I went to the opening night of the International Festival of Light exhibition in the Old City of Jerusalem.

The exhibition is open from 8:00pm to 11:00pm till July 6. I did not get to view all the light exhibits. Expect to spend at
least 2-3 hours walking around. If you have limited time, make sure to view exhibit #22 called Solaris at the Hurva Square.
I took a video of this unique audio-visual display which was projected on the side wall of the Hurva Synagogue in the Jewish Quarter.

In addition to the Festival of Light, outside the Old City walls near Yaffo Gate there was a special light and audio show in honor of the 50th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem. I took a video of the first part which includes a brief history of Jerusalem.

I posted three videos and a link to the photos at:

Please share, Thank You!

Shabbat Shalom,
