Global Jewish Unity Day
In June of 2014, Jews from around the world united in solidarity of the families of Eyal Ifrah, Gil-ad Shaer and Naftali Fraeknel, three Israeli teens kidnapped and murdered by terrorists.
In their honor, the Jerusalem Unity Prize was created by Jerusalem Mayor, Nir Barkat. The award acknowledges the efforts of organizations and individuals in Israel and the Jewish world who actively work to advance unity throughout Jewish communities and Israeli society.
Since the creation of the prize 8 years ago, a Jewish Unity Day was added to the calendar. On May 25, over 500,000 students from 32 different countries will be participating in events celebrating Jewish Unity.
You can participate by finding a Unity Day event in your area!
