Kulna Yerushalayim means “We are all Jerusalem,” and operates under this notion by connecting East and West Jerusalem through social activities. The organization originally launched in 2011 as “Simply Sing,” which merged together Arab and Jewish communities through music. As the program grew, so did more opportunity for expansion. They then launched “Jerusalem Double,” their Backgammon League, which has since become their flagship project as it brings together hundreds of people to participate or spectate.
Their success inspired them to expand as “Kulna Yerushalayim” in 2016, and they have since initiated several programs – Chess Tournaments, Sing-a-longs, Capoeira lessons and more – that connects the people of Jerusalem together. Their programs have also affected policy, such as when the municipality began lifting parking restrictions during the league’s games.
Foundation funding supports operations, staffing and programming.
