INVITATION TO PARTICIPATE

You are invited to visit and join with residents of the American Jerusalems in sending photographs of everyday life there (people, homes, shops, flora and fauna, community events and celebrations, signs with the name ‘Jerusalem,’ scenery, etc.). These photographs will be matched by images of everyday life in Jerusalem, Israel, and posted on the ‘JerUSAlem-USA’ blog.
