Tens of thousand of Christians and Jews attended the annual Jerusalem March on Tuesday, which also marked 40 years since the unification of the capital. The marchers left from two locations - Ramat Rahel and Givat Hatahmoshet - and made their way toward Gan Sacher, where Succot festivities began at 10 a.m. At 3 p.m., a festive parade took place downtown, attended by Jerusalem Mayor Uri Lupolianski and numerous visitors from abroad came to express their solidarity with the city and with Israel. Police asked the public to use public transportation wherever possible, as the blocked-off streets were expected to cause traffic jams. Rabbis had warned Jews not to participate in the event out of fear that Christian organizations would engage in missionary activity.
