Thousands of revelers are gathered outside of Jerusalem’s Great Synagogue, where they dance with flags to live music.

“I didn’t come to fight, I came to celebrate,” says Liora from Ashkelon, who is dancing with a flag. “I feel connected to our story, I care about the reunification,” she adds.

Likud MK Yuli Edelstein is present in the crowd.
