One Wish Jerusalem

A few days ago, I came across a YouTube page, called One Wish Jerusalem. It is a beautiful project, which started as a short film for Israel's 65th independence day, where people were asked to make a wish: "In commemoration of Israel's 65th Anniversary of Independence we invite you to celebrate and to reflect with these faces in mind. To remember that independence is a constant struggle, for nations and individuals, and that the achievement of the most precious freedoms - freedoms that can only be measured in the love we allow ourselves to carry as gifts to be given - rests on the individuals' willingness to find humanity in and connection with those they walk the streets with. Those who wish in the same way regardless of the language in which those wishes are expressed."


The project later expended, as people continued to wish for a better place. One Wish Jerusalem invites people to "connect to the beauty that is our shared ability to dream. To believe. To hope. To wish."
