The Jerusalem March for Pride and Tolerance will take place on Thursday, June 3, after it was canceled last year due to the coronavirus outbreak, according to the Jerusalem Open House. The event will start at 2:30 p.m. at Liberty Bell Park with an opening rally and then begin marching down Keren Hayesod Street at 3:30 p.m. toward Independence Park. Unlike most years, there will be no rally at the end of the march. Instead, everyone will go home or to a viewing party and watch a special Pride event broadcast on Facebook Live and the Open House’s YouTube channel. The broadcast will include musical performances by artists from Jerusalem and throughout Israel and panels on burning topics in the LGBT community. Thousands of police officers will be stationed along the route of the march and in the area, in order to secure the event. A number of roads in the area will be closed due to the event.
