This Week in Israel — June 28, 2018

Festival of Lights (June 27th–July 5th)
Every year in Jerusalem for the past 10 years now, hundreds of thousands have been gathering during the annual Festival of Lights to celebrate artwork that uses “light” as a key element of the work. Light was God’s first creative work. Perhaps that’s why creative artwork that uses light is something to celebrate and appreciate. Follow us on Facebook to see when we post fun videos and photos from events like this one!
