The Zionist Association from Romania, the Jews' Community from Brasov and the Friendship Association Israel ? Romania organized on May 20th 2012 at the Synagogue on Poarta Schei Street the celebration of "Jerusalem's Day", reunified for 45 years ? the "HOLLY City for JEWS, CHRISTIANS and MUSLIMS". E.S.

The evenings of the Jewish film
On the occasion of Jerusalem's Day, in the special location offered by the Synagogue from Brasov, the guests and members of the community participated in the presentation of some artistic films and documentaries from Bucharest Jewish Film Festival. The presentations lasted for two days, and the films were really successful. The guests could also enjoy an exceptional cultural show performed by the Jewish Community Assembly from Brasov, but only after the divine service done by a cantor who had come from Israel especially for this event.
Focus on culture
"We thought we could organize a really beautiful celebration because Jerusalem's Day is a special occasion for us. We wanted cultural figures to speak on this occasion, reminding people of the importance of the biggest religious centre ? Jerusalem. Jerusalem's Day ? Yom Yerushalim is a feast celebrating the date when the city of Jerusalem was liberated during the Six Days War from 1967, between State Israel and its Arabic neighbours, Egypt, Syria and Jordan," said Mr. Roth Tiberiu, the president of the Jewish Community from Brasov, the host of this event.
Jerusalem's Day ? Yom Yerushalim is celebrated in a magnificent manner by the Jews everywhere, because it represents more than that for them: 3000 years since King David made from Jerusalem the capital of Jews, the heart of nation and of Judaic religion.
The event touched the members of the Jewish Community in Brasov because the organizers managed to mark Jerusalem's Day ? Yom Yerushalim through a unique cultural event which reached the hearts of the guests.
