חיבוק ירושלים Jerusalem Hug عناق القدس
Monday, June 24th 2013
On Monday, June 24th 2013, we will welcome hundreds of visitors for the Jerusalem Hug, to walk hand in hand around the city walls, together with the inhabitants of Jerusalem. We will stand shoulder to shoulder, sharing our love for Jerusalem. We will pray, sing and dance together for unity and respect for all humankind.
The Jerusalem Hug is a symbol for another way to achieve peace. The belief in a political solution of the Middle East conflict has globally disintegrated to nothing. We need to find, as it seems, another way to achieve this. From our point of view, the only way is through our hearts. We believe that when we find peace in ourselves and when we are able to forgive, world peace will come closer.
The Jerusalem Hug gives expression to this wish for change as a concrete statement. Jerusalem stands as a symbol for peace and forgiveness in the world. Let Jerusalem be a city of connection, the heart of the world where unity and peace will be a fact. This kind of change can only come from within; from the bottom of one’s own heart.
