Jane Jacobs, who died in 2006, a few days before her 90th birthday, was an urban activist who left her imprint on the way people relate to city architecture and urban environments in general.

Jacobs may no longer be with us in person but her groundbreaking approach to the human milieu, and local ecosystems, continues to make positive waves across the globe, as people in more than 150 cities all over the world take part in the annual Jane’s Walk activities Thursday through Saturday.

This is the sixth time that Jane’s Walk events are taking place in Israel, with the domestic 16-town spread taking in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Beersheba, Bet Shemesh, Dimona and Haifa. The lineup for the capital features the On the Spectrum tour led by members of the Prizma Ensemble wearing colorful, faceless bodysuits. Part of the thinking behind the initiative is that divesting oneself of identity can facilitate interaction with others.

Other intriguing Jerusalem Jane’s Walk slots include City Story, which will examine life in downtown Jerusalem through urban art, a tour of the Arab history of the Katamon neighborhood during the Mandate Era, and the Jerusalem and the Christian World tour on the Mount of Olives.
