Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu held the weekly government meeting at Mount Herzl on Sunday, in honor of the upcoming Jerusalem Day, 28 Iyar (Tuesday night, May 7, and Wednesday, May 8).
Israel will celebrate the 46th anniversary of the unification of its capital.
Netanyahu stated during the special session that the liberation of Jerusalem was a part of Theodor Herzl’s vision for the Jewish State, adding that Jerusalem provides “A connection to our glorious and sublime history, and also gives us a window to the future, which won’t be any less sublime or glorious. We are committed to acting accordingly.”
Jerusalem’s Mayor Nir Barkat added: “There’s no doubt that Jerusalem is flying high in a lot of aspects. We wouldn’t have gotten there without the strong support of the Prime Minister and the government under your leadership.”
Several Jerusalem-centered projects were approved during the special cabinet meeting, to the tune of 1 Billion NIS. The cabinet also decided to establish a Ministerial Committee on Jerusalem affairs, part of the Jerusalem Affairs Office, which is currently headed by Economy and Trade Minister Naftali Bennett.
Mayor Barkat affirmed that “we Jerusalemites have reclaimed our pride in our city, which we love so much. For the first time in many years, we have made Jerusalem attractive to the younger population, which have chosen to stay and live here. Jerusalem is on the rise in all facets.”
