Today (Sunday, 30 June 2019), Jerusalem Mayor Moshe Lion inaugurated Jerusalem Square in Paris in the presence of Mayor Anne Hidalgo and the Israeli Ambassador to France, Aliza Bin-Noun, Head of the Consistoire, Joel Margi, the Chief Rabbi of France, Haïm Korsia, and the Chief Rabbi of Paris, Michel Gugenheim. The square is located in Paris's 17th arrondissement. 

 
Last January, the President of Israel, Mr. Reuven Rivlin and his wife, Nechama, visited Paris. During the visit, they were informed by the mayor of Paris that there is an "Israel Square" in the city, but there is no sign that bears the name of the capital of Israel - Jerusalem. Today, a few months later, the two mayors inaugurated this square.


Mayor Lion: "I want to thank Mayor Hidalgo and the city of Paris for this beautiful initiative to name a square in honor of Jerusalem. This act strengthens the bond between our cities - two cities that have left their mark on the world. As Mayors, promoting tolerance, love, and peace in our cities is a top priority. We must do all in our power to create and ensure coexistence and companionship between different sectors and religious groups.”
