About the Exhibit
Jerusalem, the eternal capital of the Jewish People, is currently celebrating the 50th anniversary of its reunification. This anniversary is not only a historic celebration for the Jewish People, but a representation of the goodness and decency of Jewish-democratic sovereignty. In honor of this historic occasion, Im Tirtzu, the largest grassroots Zionist movement in Israel, has created a photographic exhibition based on the premise that a picture is wortha thousand words.
Thanks to the astute and loving eye of renowned photographer Sharon Gabay, Im Tirtzu has assembled a collection of fifty photographs that, without text, speak volumes about the great things that a unified Jerusalem under Jewish sovereignty has brought: tolerance, co-existence, mutual respect and freedom of religion.
In Gabay’s own words, “I want to photograph the truth, and the truth is that Jerusalem is a pluralistic city that accepts everyone.”
