The Jerusalem Hug
Sunday June 21, the 'Jerusalem Hug' will be held. Light workers from Israel,
Palestine and from all over the world will come together to encircle and
embrace the Old City of Jerusalem with love and devotion.
The Jerusalem Hug will be organized already for the third time, to make the
people aware that there is a very shaped perspective for the city of
Jerusalem as a city of peace: a new, undivided Jerusalem, as the capital of
Palestine, Israel and at large.
Inhabitants of Jerusalem will be encouraged to join the coming Jerusalem Hug
with the idea of a New Jerusalem that might be realized with their support.
The aim of this event is to promote a peaceful experience, a life of freedom
and joy to all people. We will focus on love, respect and unity. With this
attitude we will spread out around the walls of the Old City holding hands,
singing and praying for peace and respect for all humankind.
The Jerusalem Hug will start at 18:00 pm. at the Damascus Gate on the Arabic
side and at the Jaffa Gate on the Israeli side of the Old City. The
participants will spread around the walls, forming a human chain around the
Old City. They will meet at Tzahal Square, for a closing drum concert on the
highest point of the city wall. Palestinian and Israeli drummers will
perform together ,whipping up the audience and inviting them to dance. They
will get support from internationally famous drummers and musicians. The
concert will be linked live with concerts on 30 other locations worldwide,
where the living water will be honored and will be brought in harmony with
the rhythm of the human heartbeat.
Palestinian children will distribute free bottles of water, coming from the
sources of Jericho. Under the rhythm of the drums this water will be
radiated with the love of our hearts and shared with each other. The
audience will stick little hearts on the bottles with the words: 'Wherever
water is giving, peace and prosperity will be living'.
