Jerusalem Events Calendar

Jerusalem events, cultural, sports and simply fun entertainment are all here at your fingertips to enjoy. This may be one of the most ancient cities around, but it is also a modern cosmopolitan place with international flair.

Many "happenings" (as Israelis like to say) are planned around religious holidays - you can expect loads of activities to choose from around the week-long Jewish holidays of Sukkot, Pesach and Chanukah, for example, and major Christian and Muslim holidays as well. Each season also brings with it its yearly schedule of Jerusalem entertainment: fairs and festivals of all kinds.

Things to do in Jerusalem abound and range from pop concerts to ballet, from kids' activities to flash mob events, museum exhibits to business conferences. You will find events meant to nourish the soul, others designed to educate and many that were simply dreamt up to give you a good time.

We could not possibly list everything going on at any one time, but we do try each week to choose a sampling of those most likely to interest you – our visitors.
