In light of what is now taking place around the current and future status of Jerusalem, and the uncertainty in the air, I truly hope that all the wonderful initiatives that have been taking place in recent years to connect all the cultures that live here will continue strong.
I am very grateful that only two months ago, the Leichtag Foundation let me join their visits to Bethlehem, Ramallah and Jericho through a very special lens. Through the arts. Through gallery tours and museums. Through contemporary art and thinking in these three cities. I was only able to catch a small glimpse of what I saw, but the trip was inspiring and eye-opening at the least.
I wish the Leichtag Foundation a lot of success with their future work in this arena, and I hope we can all continue to connect on cultural grounds.
