Jerusalem — a United City

Jerusalem as a city has grown
by leaps and bounds in both area
and population. Twenty years ago
the overall population of Jersalem
was under 90,000. Today the city
has a Jewish population of 200,000,
the overwhelming majority of them
immigrants who arrived to the
country after the emergence of the
state. In addition it has a non-Jew-
ish population of 65,000, of whom
54,000 are Moslems and 11,000 are
non Christians. And the city is in
process of continuous growth.
Large numbers of new arrivals are
settling in Jerusalem, which is ex-
periencing an ever-growing rate of
development and building in both
the Jewish and Arab sectors of the
The physical wall that separated
the two sections of the city has
been removed; not so the partition
between the Arab citizen and the
Jewish. It existed 19 years ago
before the physical rampart was
erected and it still exists. By all
signs it may continue to exist for
a long time to come, for a lot of
work and effort will be required
before it can be removed. The de-
sire for the fall of this partition
exists among the Jews. One can
only hope that the same desire will
one day be engendered among the
Arabs. For the time being no one
can make any forecasts as to when
this will come about.
The existing Municipal Council
of Jerusalem was elected before
the unification of Jerusalem and
the residenti of East Jerusalem
are not as yet represented in it.
Mayor Teddy Rolla hopes that
they will be able to participate in
the elections due to be held in
November 1969, so that they may
assume responsibility for the
services accorded to them. For
the time being they do not seem
to be willing to accept the privi-
It is interesting to note that
under Jordanian rule only some
3,000 people in East Jerusalem
enjoyed voting rights in the elec-
tions to the Municipal Council,
since the• franchise was granted
only to taxpayers over the age of
21. The right will be accorded to
all residents both men and wom-
en over the age of 18, and their
number in East Jerusalem will
come to about 30,000.
From the economic and em-
ployment points of view, the situa-
tion in East Jerusalem is much
improved since the unification.
About 6,000 East Jersalemites work
daily in the Jewish sector of the
city in industry, building trades
and services, about 10 per cent of
these being employed by the muni-
cipality. Their numbers are stead-
ily increasing.
Mayor Kollek was at one time
head of the government tourist
corporation. He is naturally inter-
ested, therefore, in developing tour-
ism to Jerusalem. The municipality
has a special department for the

attract– visitors from far and wide,
and tourists are no longer satisfied
with a mere bus ride through the
streets of the city. Not long ago the
mayor presented a memento to the
300,000th tourist visiting the city in
1968, but before the year is out he
will be called upon to make a
similar presentation to tourist num-
ber 400,000.
Several new hotels have been
recently opened in Jerusalem and
two or three others are under con-
struction. Most of the hotels in the
eastern and western parts of Jeru-
salem registered full occupancy
throughout the spring and sum-
mer. The municipality also organ-
izes conducted tours to the holy
