Jerusalem: Morality Or Tolerance,
Separateness, Peaceful Coexistence

NORMAN NAIMARK

Twenty years after its "unification"
Jerusalem is still a divided city. The
physical walls came down, but the
psychological walls remain. There is very
little voluntary social mixing between
Arabs and Jews and there are virtually no
mixed neighborhoods.
The city is organized in a mosaic of
homogeneous neighborhoods, which is seen
as the best model for attainment of
peaceful coexistence, the idea being that
separation in space contributes to reduc-
tion of tension, preservation of the identi-
ty of different groups and a guarantee of
their physical and psychological security.
Teddy Kollek, Jerusalem's mayor, believes
that each group and area should have the
greatest autonomy with regard to its own
municipal services and its style of life.
Separation is most marked in the

and secondary education. The Arab
children follow a Jordanian program of
studies that does not-come under the Israeli
Ministry of Education.
Yet, in spite of the individuation of the
two peoples, there is a fascinating melding
of these disparate cultures in Jerusalem's
concert and care for the health of its
residents, Arab and Jew. In the hospitals,
staff or patients can be Arab or Jew,
without discrimination. Everyone is a
member of a sick fund. Arab women often
give birth in the Orthodox Shaarey Zedek
Hospital. Hadassah Hospital receives pa-
tients from all the Arab countries.
There are other elements in this
paradoxical atmosphere of tolerance and
rejection. In the most "unnegotiable" city
