Bridge of Strings
Bridge of Strings Arnon Bosney

The Jerusalem Municipality lit up on Wednesday night the Bridge of Strings at the entrance to the capital with a unique lighting installation in honor of Israel's 67th Independence Day. 

The installation is a huge blue and white Star of David, about 14 meters (45 feet) on each side. It hangs dependent on the center of the bridge, creating the effect that the star is floating, and giving the sensation of another dimension on the bridge. 

The Star of David and all of the bridge's steel cords are lit up with special lighting, which emphasize the structure of the bridge. The accompanying sound system creates the feeling of a harp being played. 

"The unique spectacle, which is visible from afar, tells the story and shows the pride of the Jewish people, and its connection to the city of Jerusalem. It enters the hearts of all the people entering and leaving the city," the Jerusalem Municipality said.  

The full performance on the Bridge of Strings, including the lights and music, will be played every evening (except Fridays) for the next two months between 7:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. 

The light show was created by the performance director of the Ariel Company and was built by Gil Teichman.
