"Jerusalem is a beautiful mosaic of different religions, communities, cultures and communities," said Lion.
Jerusalem Mayor Moshe Lion held a festive celebration for members of all faiths in Jerusalem Tuesday, focusing on tolerance and coexistence in the city.

The event, which has been held annually for over 30 years, was attended by dozens of clerics and dignitaries from various communities as well as by diplomats and consuls from various countries.

"Every country that transfers its embassy to the capital of Israel, Jerusalem, will be guided through the process by me and the Jerusalem Municipality," said Lion during the ceremony.

Among the senior clerics attending the event were the Greek Orthodox Patriarch of Jerusalem, Theophilus III, Custos of the Holy Land, Father Francesco Patton, Chairman of the Israel's Imam Association, Sheikh Muhammad Kiwan, and Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem, Rabbi Aryeh Stern.

The clerics emphasized their commitment to promoting constructive dialogue on interfaith coexistence and tolerance, alongside the preservation of the freedom of worship and the religious status quo.

"Jerusalem is a beautiful mosaic of different religions, cultures and communities," said Lion.
