The Jerusalem Municipality lights up the Old City’s walls with the flags of Ukraine and Russia, saying it would be happy to host ceasefire talks between the countries.

Between the flags is written, “He who makes peace in the heavens,” a biblical verse that is cited in the Kaddish.

“Jerusalem, the State of Israel’s capital, is a city of peace and coexistence. We are in favor of an end to the fighting and the sides reaching understandings,” the municipality says. “We would be happy to answer the request of the president of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, and host the diplomatic dialogue between the two countries here in Jerusalem.”
