Celebrate Jerusalem through the moments that reveal it

Share your Jerusalem Moments!

Jerusalem brings together many grand narratives, but we experience it first and foremost through the little moments, encounters, and daily scenes that make it come to life. In the fifty days leading up to the 50th Yom Yerushalayim (from April 5th to May 24th 2017), www.jerusalem-moments.com will become a tapestry of moments; sharing what we experience here, and celebrating real-life Jerusalem in all its quirky glory. Would you like to share your own favorite/intriguing/thought provoking Jerusalem moments and join the celebration?

A Jerusalem Moment can be...

An image

Some pictures tell stories, and in Jerusalem, there are many stories to tell. Send your pictures our way and let them share this city with the world!

An essay

We want to hear your short (between one line and several paragraphs) personal narratives that invite us to encounter Jerusalem as you experience it.

A surprise

Send us your poetry, your creative videos, your old Facebook posts, or anything else that comes to mind. Jerusalem is a surprising sort of place, and we will try to help you share your surprising creations.

Follow @JLMmoments on Twitter and Facebook for updates and writing prompts.


How to share your moments:

Please send your entries to jerusalemmoments@gmail.com, along with a short bio in the third person and a head shot.
Please submit original content only. While you may send us your entries at any point between now and the end of the project (May 24th), we would prefer that you submit before April 5th so that we can process it in time. Multiple submissions are welcome. We regret that we will not be able to publish all submissions, but we will try and get back to you in a timely manner.
