For the first time: there will be no fireworks on Independence Day in Jerusalem, the Jerusalem Municipality will set off quiet fireworks ahead of the Independence Day celebrations in the city, taking into account different populations


The Municipality of Jerusalem joins other progressive cities in Israel that have decided to ban the use of fireworks on Independence Day out of consideration for IDF soldiers and security forces who are dealing with post-trauma. In previous years, the celebrations all over the city



included long fireworks displays, which affected and harmed various populations and animals. This year, silent fireworks will be set off in the neighborhoods, out of a desire to maintain the routine of the celebrations and avoid harming those populations. The



silent fireworks are colorful and similar in effect to the regular fireworks. The silent fireworks will relieve a population that suffers from loud noises, including children, people with anxiety and sensory regulation problems, the elderly and animals that are afraid of sounds strong

The Mayor of Jerusalem, Moshe Leon: "In Jerusalem, everyone celebrates together! The effect of fireworks on different populations and animals is clear to us. Therefore, out of respect and consideration, we decided this year to set off silent fireworks in the various neighborhoods and in the community administrations."
