Wujood: A Grassroots Guide to Jerusalem

The Fifth Friday Sisterhood is platforming the launch of their Guide Book to Jerusalem, an initiative by locals who live and work in and around this historical city.
Millions of tourists visit Jerusalem every year. Only a small percentage of them experience the Eastern part of occupied Jerusalem, due to the Israeli policies in tourism. Wujood reveals a part of Jerusalem that is usually hidden from the experience of tourists.

Firstly, Wujood informs visitors where they can go and what they can see in the Eastern part of Jerusalem, providing them with practical information about places to stay, eat, and shop in the city. Secondly, Wujood provides an insight into the political and historical context to Jerusalem from a Palestinian perspective.

Come and join and Amany Khalifa, in a conversation about the how’s and why’s and need for such a Guide!

Local Mobilisation coordinator at Grassroots Al-Quds

Marketing Planning and Analysis Manager, EMEA at Netflix
