The Culture and Sports Ministry agreed on Sunday to allocate NIS 7 million to Jerusalem’s cultural institutions, as well as ongoing initiatives to promote culture, raising the municipality’s annual investment in the arts to a record high of NIS 50 m., the municipality said.

Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat lauded the agreement made with the aid of Culture and Sports Minister Miri Regev. “Jerusalem has experienced in recent years an unprecedented cultural renaissance, and returned as the cultural capital of Israel,” he said in a statement.

“The municipality will continue to operate and support the city’s cultural institutions in order to strengthen and promote the city’s culture, not only with new events and festivals, but by strengthening and leveraging the ongoing work of existing institutions, as well as by encouraging more entrepreneurial culture and artistic enterprises in the capital.”
