Jerusalem Embraces Immigrants at 'The Event'


Arutz Sheva was on the scene Thursday at The Event in Jerusalem's ICC (International Convention Center) Building, an event aimed at helping the English and French immigrant community overcome the language barrier and better integrate into life in Israel.

Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat told Arutz Sheva that the annual event continues to grow remarkably, a process that testifies to the fact that Jerusalem is "starting to have a critical mass of immigrants from French and English speaking countries."
