Minister of Public Diplomacy and Diaspora Affairs Yuli Edelstein kicked off a campaign to have Jerusalem nominated as one of the "New7Wonders: Cities" on Wednesday outside of Jaffa Gate.

After failing to have the Dead Sea included in the New7Wonders of Nature, Israel is set to try to get the capital on the list of the most amazing cities.

Voting doesn't start until Saturday, but Edelstein joined Youth For Jerusalem's stand outside the Old City to submit nominations for Jerusalem to be included in the vote.
