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.
When you find something that peaks your interest, click on its name. This will open up a balloon with more information, including links to maps.
The reason we've chosen to use Google's calendar application, rather than any other, is that you can sync any information on this calendar right to your own Google Calendar - and from there to your mobile device.
When you click on an item, inside the balloon window that opens up, you will also see a link that says "copy to my calendar." Click - and easily access the info you want from anywhere.
