Jerusalem Alive” is the theme of an exhibition of photographs and other items related to Jerusalem that opened last night at the Place Bonaventure, Montreal’s largest shopping center, under the auspices of the Canada-Israel Cultural Foundation. Local authorties and prominent public figures attended the opening which was addressed by the Israeli Consul General Zvi Caspi who stressed the role of Jerusalem as a “city of peace.”

Caspi said, “It is our determined intention to do all that is in our power to maintain its tranquility and to restore its beauty and to make and keep this city open with free access to all worshippers, never again to be artificially divided and to become a battlefield and a scene of destrution and desecration.” Caspi read a cable from Mayor Teddy Kollek of Jerusalem expressing his hope that “This exhibition will turn each visit (at the exhibition) into a visitor to Jerusalem.”
