The Jerusalem Day Flag March Request

The above is the request that was published prior to the conducting of the Jerusalem Day Flag-Dance March into the Old City and to the Western Wall Plaza.

The second paragraph notes that "in recent years, we have unfortunately witnessed a minority from within the ranks of the marchers who ignore the essence of the festivities - raising the concsiousness of United and Sacred Jerusalem - and get involved with the insignificant - catcalls, disturbances of the peace and clashes with police prtecting the march and so on.  Although clearly a minority, it overshadows negatively the atmosphere of the event".

The request is then made that all educators explain to the pupils the importance of being involved in the positive aspects of the event.

A valiant attempt but not all listened.
