Jerusalem Day is the main holiday of the year, which this time will take place in quarantine

This year, the capital of Israel will celebrate its 53rd anniversary. But, unfortunately, due to the epidemic of the Kovid-19 virus, the long-awaited holiday will take place not in the usual format, but with certain restrictions.

The main tradition of celebrating the day of the city, from year to year - the traditional dance of flags in Jerusalem. But this time it was canceled. Only thanks to the Supreme Court, the police and the organization organizing the march, the action will take place on Thursday evening.

The Supreme Court has asked two parties - the police and the Amla Kavali Association - to agree on a plan for this year's limited event. After discussions between the police and the organization, the head of the Jerusalem Police Department presented the agreements reached.

Residents of the capital rejoiced at this news.

What holiday awaits Jerusalem?

This year the celebration will take place without government meetings, without a city-loving ceremony, The Ethiopian Jews National Remembrance Day ceremony will be without a crowd, and the ceremony to honor beloved Jerusalem at the Tower of David Museum will be canceled.

Dances in the center of Yeshiva will also be held in a limited format.

As for the flag dance itself, the event will consist of three sections.

The first is driving trucks and cars.

The second is a human chain of several hundred people, which will take place in several places approved by the police. People are transported around the Old Town by buses provided by the municipality. The main requirement - participants will have to stand at a distance of 2 meters from each other. During this part, other participants will be allowed to watch the chain from the Wall embankment.

The third part - 450 people will be able to pray at the Western Wall.

Lawyer Nati Rom, representing Amalabi, said: "The tradition will not be broken. We are glad that the flag dance continues even during the Crown, and we hope that next year we will have a particularly big event. We thank the Israeli police for their efforts and persistence ".

So, the feast of Jerusalem, albeit with restrictions, will still take place.

Ancient Mosque, Dome of the Rock on Temple Mount

Temple Mount is a special place for the Jewish people.

According to old legends, it was on it that Abraham had to give his own son, Isaac. Here the sanctuary was rebuilt in the form of a temple with an ark. The Temple Mount was the point from which the great Way of the Cross began. After the destruction of the temple, which occurred 40 years after its creation, two mosques were erected on this site. One of them was the Dome of the Rock.

This mosque impresses with its grandiose golden domes and is an outstanding example of architecture. Each of the domes in diameter reaches about 20 meters. Thanks to this, they are visible from almost anywhere in the city.

Inside the mosque is a rocky platform from which, according to legend, the prophet Muhammad ascended to heaven.

There is also a museum of Islamic art, and the Paradise Stone and Earth Stone are kept.

The internal halls of the mosque are decorated with marble, ceramic tiles and mosaic ornaments. Two-story galleries with multi-colored stained-glass windows stretch along the walls.

Even the most luxurious hotels in Jerusalem cannot be compared with this mosque in its splendor.

During quarantine, work on urban infrastructure projects accelerated

During quarantine, traffic on the roads was limited, which caused the activation of infrastructure.

In this regard, Mayor Moshe Leon this week instructed specialists to accelerate urban infrastructure projects.

For example, the first and most important project that is already underway is the expansion of the light rail line, the red line, to Hadass Ein Kerem in the south and Neve Yaakov in the north.

“The municipality of Jerusalem, the Ministry of Transport, the group of transport master plans and Moriah will facilitate infrastructure work to expand the red line of the light rail in the coming days,” the mayor said. The municipality added that for more intensive work, work will be performed during rarefied automobile traffic.

The work will include excavation and laying of railway infrastructure, after which the transport situation will be restored to its previous state.

Another important project that is being implemented next week will be the laying of public transport routes on Begin Road.

As part of this work, the route will be expanded, and a 2.5 km long road will be built on the new route. The work will include the organization of infrastructure for the placement of control and information signs, lighting and fences.

Also this week, the modernization of city streets will be accelerated. Modernization work includes the modernization of roads and sidewalks, including geometric changes, modernization of lighting, planting trees and flowers, as well as the placement of outdoor furniture.

This burst of infrastructure work is caused by the desire of the municipality to minimize the inconvenience of citizens.

https://avalanches.com/il/jerusalema__on_the_first_weekday_of_the_holiday_week_there_are_reports_from_all_1931198_18_04_2022

On the first weekday of the holiday week, there are reports from all over Israel of the closure of popular holiday destinations - crowds of vacationers overwhelm beaches, national parks, nature reserves and campsites.


In the middle of the day, the Association of Kinneret Cities announced that all 15 "quiet" family beaches on the northern and eastern coast of our only lake are closed due to overflow, and suggested that citizens look for other places to relax.


But there are also crowds elsewhere. The National Parks and Preserve Authority has closed the entrance to the Ein Gedi nature reserve for those who have not booked parking spaces in advance.


The city beaches of Rishon LeZion, the beaches of Palmachim and Nakhsholim, the Tel Afek National Park are closed - there are also no free places left.


The Taba border checkpoint cannot cope with the influx of people wishing to leave for Sinai, many hours of queues lined up on both sides. The administration asks fellow citizens not to come to the checkpoint in the morning - in the evenings there is no such pandemonium. People languish under the scorching sun, scolding the authorities for their inability and deafness to the needs of citizens - but the reason for the holiday suffering lies deeper: Israel is rapidly becoming the most populous country in the world.


The tourist infrastructure and nature of Israel cannot withstand the demographic load, despite the fact that everyone who had such an opportunity tried to leave Israel for the holiday week, and Ben Gurion Airport has also been operating at the limit of its capacity in recent days.

On Tuesday, April 19, the Israeli Ministry of Health published new data on the coronavirus epidemic. The sixth wave of the epidemic is on the decline.


In total, 4,038,703 cases of coronavirus infection have been detected in the country since the start of the pandemic.


The number of infected people is taken into account by PCR tests and tests at checkpoints (a positive home test result is not taken into account in statistics if it is not confirmed at the checkpoint).


Over the past 24 hours, 62,591 tests have been carried out. Coronavirus was detected in 9% of cases.


At the moment, 32149 people are infected (-269 per day).


10,647 COVID-19 cases died (+17 per day; data for several days has been updated).


598 cases in hospitals (+16 per day; 1.8% of the current number of infected), others are recovering in specially equipped hotels or at home.

The condition of 216 patients (-4 per day; 0.7% of the current number of infected) is assessed by doctors as severe, 75 (-3) are connected to ventilators or ECMO.


The infectiousness index (an index of the reproduction of the virus, showing how many people, on average, one infected person transmits it) - 0.7.


According to a report by the Israeli Ministry of Health, 87% of seriously ill patients are over 60 years old.


Most people over 60 years of age are fully vaccinated, and the percentage of seriously ill among them is much lower than among the unvaccinated. Among citizens in the age group 60+, 40/100 thousand are seriously ill and unvaccinated, 11/100 thousand are seriously ill and vaccinated for a long time (more than six months), and 9/100 thousand are seriously ill and fully vaccinated. At the same time, against the background of high infection rates in absolute numbers, the number of seriously ill patients among fully vaccinated elderly people is growing: at the moment, among seriously ill patients in the 60+ category, there are 32 unvaccinated, 9 vaccinated long ago (more than six months), and 131 fully vaccinated. In the age categories under 60 years among seriously ill unvaccinated absolute majority.


Vaccination


According to the Israeli Ministry of Health, as of April 19, 6,705,575 people (72% of the country's population) received the first dose of the coronavirus vaccine, and 6,133,264 people (65% of the country's population) received the second dose. 4484464 people were vaccinated with the third dose (48% of the country's population). The fourth dose was received by 796,184 people (9% of the country's population).

In recent months, the vaccination process in Israel has been very slow. There is a growing number of people who were vaccinated more than six months ago (that is, they cannot be considered "fully vaccinated").

You can sign up for the vaccination queue at the health insurance fund: by phone, through the website or mobile application.


There is a program "Vaccination at home", the purpose of which is to eliminate social injustice in relation to residents of the periphery and settlements with a low socio-economic status.

QUARANTINE RESTRICTIONS


A green certificate is only required for "high risk" events. For example, at celebrations or parties with a large number of participants.


The following populations are eligible for the Green Certificate:

- Persons vaccinated with two doses of the vaccine, when no more than four months have passed since the second dose;

- Persons who have been ill with coronavirus, if more than four months have not passed since the moment of recovery;

- Persons vaccinated with three or four doses of the vaccine, regardless of the date of vaccination.


A decision was made to abolish the "green standard". However, it will still be necessary to do an antigen test before entering nursing homes.


Currently:

- Nursing homes, geriatric hospitals and hostels for the elderly will require a negative rapid test result to enter.

- It is recommended to be tested for coronavirus before meeting with the elderly.

- Institutions that will require a rapid test before entering will receive partial subsidies from the state.

- Unvaccinated employees of educational institutions, medical institutions and social services will still be required to be tested twice a week for coronavirus.

Middle school students are exempt from weekly coronavirus tests.

- Testing for coronavirus in elementary grades has been cancelled.

Benjamin Netanyahu may again return to the post of prime minister - the politician has every chance of getting the votes of more than half of the deputies in the vote in May. This was announced to Izvestiya on Tuesday, April 19, by the adviser to the ex-premier Ariel Bulstein.


“The split of the coalition and its fall is a matter of the near future. If there are new elections, I have no doubt that Netanyahu will become Israeli Prime Minister. But even if there are no elections, it seems to me that he has a chance to get the votes of more than 50% of the deputies in the current composition of the Knesset, ”said the adviser.

The first parliamentary session after the holidays will take place on May 9.


On the evening of April 17, the Arab RAAM party suspended its membership in Israel's ruling coalition and said: "If the government continues its actions against the people of Jerusalem, we will resign as a bloc."

https://avalanches.com/il/telaviv__for_the_first_time_in_months_israel_launched_an_air_strike_on_the_ga1932296_19_04_2022

For the first time in months, Israel launched an air strike on the Gaza Strip in response to a missile launch by militants.


Clashes around the Al-Aqsa mosque complex in occupied East Jerusalem continued throughout the weekend. More than one hundred and seventy people were injured during the riots, most of them Palestinians.


Al-Aqsa Mosque is one of the most revered shrines of Islam, located in the heart of old Jerusalem. There is also a sacred place for the Jews - the Temple Mount.


A similar escalation in Jerusalem around the same time last year triggered repeated rocket attacks on Israel by Hamas militants, which eventually escalated into an 11-day war.


Shootings in Gaza and clashes in Al-Aqsa came after a spate of violence, including four deadly attacks since late March by Palestinians and Israeli Arabs that killed 14 people, mostly civilians.

Several people were injured Sunday when Palestinians threw stones at Israeli buses on their way to Jerusalem's Old City, Israeli police said.


Palestinians accuse Israel of attacking Al-Aqsa during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. Israel says Palestinian protesters are seeking to disrupt Muslim prayers for political purposes and prevent visits by Jews, who are currently celebrating Passover.

International fashion designer Priyanka Mallick joined at COP27, Egypt.

International fashion designer Priyanka Mallick joined COP27 in Egypt , virtually. She is a community adviser and member of the United Nations International and the Royal Commonwealth Society of the United Kingdom. She attended the meetings of the Food System Pavilion by FAO and UNFCC. She raised her voice about the climate emergency , hunger crisis, and gender equality for climate justice.

The United Nations Climate Change Conference COP27 closed with a breakthrough agreement to provide “loss and damage” funding for vulnerable countries hit hard by climate disasters.


“This outcome moves us forward,” said Simon Stiell, UN Climate Change Executive Secretary. “We have determined a way forward on a decades-long conversation on funding for loss and damage – deliberating over how we address the impacts on communities whose lives and livelihoods have been ruined by the very worst impacts of climate change.”


Set against a difficult geopolitical backdrop, COP27 resulted in countries delivering a package of decisions that reaffirmed their commitment to limit global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. The package also strengthened action by countries to cut greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to the inevitable impacts of climate change, as well as boosting the support of finance, technology and capacity building needed by developing countries.


Creating a specific fund for loss and damage marked an important point of progress, with the issue added to the official agenda and adopted for the first time at COP27.


Governments took the ground-breaking decision to establish new funding arrangements, as well as a dedicated fund, to assist developing countries in responding to loss and damage. Governments also agreed to establish a ‘transitional committee’ to make recommendations on how to operationalize both the new funding arrangements and the fund at COP28 next year. The first meeting of the transitional committee is expected to take place before the end of March 2023.


Parties also agreed on the institutional arrangements to operationalize the Santiago Network for Loss and Damage, to catalyze technical assistance to developing countries that are particularly vulnerable to the adverse effects of climate change.


COP27 saw significant progress on adaptation, with governments agreeing on the way to move forward on the Global Goal on Adaptation, which will conclude at COP28 and inform the first Global Stocktake, improving resilience amongst the most vulnerable. New pledges, totaling more than USD 230 million, were made to the Adaptation Fund at COP27. These pledges will help many more vulnerable communities adapt to climate change through concrete adaptation solutions. COP27 President Sameh Shoukry announced the Sharm el-Sheikh Adaptation Agenda, enhancing resilience for people living in the most climate-vulnerable communities by 2030. UN Climate Change’s Standing Committee on Finance was requested to prepare a report on doubling adaptation finance for consideration at COP28 next year.

The author Writer Bhaiya finally spoke about his life and revealed where he hailed from

Writer Bhaiya, also known as Aditya Singh, is an Indian Author who published the book “The Cycle of Reasons: — 24 Reasons”


Writer Bhaiya has been yielding unreleased compositions for years when publishing houses were more well-known than self-publishing. On the occasion of his birthday, he addressed a group and shattered his curtain of silence when questioned about his childhood, career, and personal life.


Statement over Early Life


In response to a question regarding how his life drove him to reserve Writer Bhaiya as a pen name unintentionally; as mentioned by him on his Instagram story, the beloved author Writer Bhaiya made the following statement:-

“I go by the pen name Writer Bhaiya online as a token of love, but as the proportion of people is cognizant, my forename is Aditya Singh stepped into the world at merely six months as a premature baby in Mumbai on October 2nd.


In the 20th century, my family immigrated to Mumbai from Bihar. I attended high school in Mumbai. As a young child, I caused trouble and was typically mischievous to everybody around me. I grew up to be a reserved person in school after a certain age as a response to childhood and generational trauma.


Everything in 2016 began abruptly as a part of my chaotic life when I began to express myself with a pen in my hand on a piece of paper after sobbing one day over not being able to express myself how I wanted to. As a teen, I started to compose Hindi Shayari and poems. I eventually started penning fictional short tales, poetry, and letters devoted to my friends with compassion and love. My life took unexpected turns in 2017, which bounded me to chronicle my suffering in a journal.


I joined Instagram in 2017. In 2018, I began sporadically sharing my writings on Instagram Stories. My composed piece of prose on stories caught the attention of my loved ones & acquaintances more often than in everyday life, where I would disguise most of my crafted work. As time passed, my acquaintances began referring to me as a WRITER. Pairing the title my companions drew me and the premise that I was a Bihari dwelling in Mumbai, some people alluded me as Bhaiya in an unkind and insulting manner, prompting me to share the title: — Writer Bhaiya as my PEN NAME.

In the years 2017 and 2019, I suffered from depression twice. I battled ADHD struggles for years without recognising it was ADHD, and have been dealing with anxiety and panic attacks for two years. Since 2018, I have produced unpublished works every year and have worked as a ghostwriter for a year on different platforms.”


Statement over Career


Writer Bhaiya outlined his family in regard to his story to a person in the group who hugged him and sobbed in front of him questioning; if people are worthy of lingering as writers despite disobeying their parents.


“My family was unaware of the outcome of fear I held to my heart to notify them that I had released my first book after penning articles for entities and ghostwriting for savings on the internet because I had never aspired in childhood to stand destined as an author.


In 2022, I published a book titled “The Cycle Of Reasons:- 24 Reasons” as everyone present here is aware.


In an effort to; safeguard one life, I penned 24 reasons to continue existing in the world and journeying as a wanderer in pursuit of serenity and tranquilly and to recognise his responsibility to others as a writer and a debut author. Follow where your heart leads you with your career,” says Writer Bhaiya implies them that they can if they have a lamp in their hearts.


Statement over Personal life


Adding to his previous answer, Writer Bhaiya said, “I was born in a Hindu Family. I had strong ties with my family while I was young, but as I became a grown-up, my ties with them were erratic and periodically unfortunate as the clash of trauma made me numb as a teen.”


In striving to retain a boundary among his personal, social, and professional lives, writer Bhaiya adheres to a professional code of ethics. As a response, he denied politely asking to refrain from such questions, which made limited information to be verified; about his personal life in general.


However, he is said to have a girlfriend who has been with him since they were in high school.


His depression in 2019 drove him to consider suicide a second time, and he disclosed as considerably on Instagram, saying that if the light didn’t break through the sea of his darkness, he almost gave up on life.
