Jersualem @ 50
“Jerusalem of Gold, of Copper and Light, for all your songs, I am a harp…”
Naomi Shemer, Yerushalayim Shel Zahav

For 2000 years, Jerusalem was more a myth than a mother. But all that changed in 1967. People world-wide can now walk her streets, hear her songs, marvel at her poetry, dig back into her history, meditate on her buildings and ruins and laugh in her alleyways.

The modules will cover, amongst others: Lovers of Jerusalem – the founding of the city under King David; Jerusalem in song, literature, poetry and prayer; Jerusalem in architecture and art; the City of Justice?; The 6-day war and the liberation of Jerusalem; Jerusalem in Halachah; Jerusalem in Islam and Christianity; The Occupied Wall? – Resolution 2334.

Grab this opportunity to deepen your knowledge about this cornerstone of Jewish history, spirituality and identity. This year in Jerusalem!

Each module is stand-alone and may consist of one or several sessions.

Join the Academy in partnership with the Chabad of Sandton, our faculty and guest lecturers for a learning, growing and reflecting mosaic of Jerusalem at 50.
