Palestinian traditional wedding flash mob organized by a women-owned bazaar goes viral as symbol of interreligious dialogue

A video of a traditional Palestinian wedding with Muslim Palestinian women and Christian nuns dancing together went viral on the internet. This flash mob was organized by a women-owned businesses bazaar in Jerusalem, managed by the Women’s Center AlThouri Silwan in cooperation with the Abraham’s House. The bazaar is a Christmas market organized by women - including nuns - who started selling handcraft items from different cultures and religious communities in East Jerusalem. This activity is seen as an interreligious dialogue in action, fostering communal harmony at a place often bereft of peace.

On November 27, more than 70 exhibitors, mostly from AlThouri, Silwan and neighborhoods of East Jerusalem, offered handcrafts including jewelry, crockery, cosmetics, fashion accessories and local specialties at the "Christmas Bazaar" at Abraham’s House, south of the Old City of Jerusalem. The bazaar also offered concerts and short artistic performances. All these women proudly presented their work together, as a result of their creativity and talent.
