Except for the time she did national service in Beit She’an, Rachel Sharansky Danziger has lived her whole life in Jerusalem. In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem, Danziger recently embarked on a private initiative to help everyday Jerusalem come alive.Having attended a lifetime of Jerusalem Day ceremonies, Danziger realized, “There’s a gap between the Jerusalem we celebrate in public ceremonies – full of history, great causes and grand narratives – and Jerusalem as we experience it every day.

The big celebrations don’t quite capture what really matters to people.
