United Buddy Bears - The Art of Tolerance


After Cairo, the exhibition will travel to Jerusalem. Due to an initiative of the municipality, the bears will be arranged in a large circle on Safra Square, directly in front of the town hall and in close proximity to the Old Town. Hand in Hand, the 138 United Buddy Bears will promote living together in peace and harmony until 28th August 2007 (with the possibility of an extension).


Greetings: Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni (Download Symbolpdf ) and German Federal Minister for Foreign Affairs Dr. Frank-Walter Steinmeier ( Download Symbolpdf )



Among other honours, the actress Iris Berben has been awarded the Cross of Merit (First Class) of the Federal Republic of Germany and the Leo Baeck Award, the highest honouring of the Central Consistory of Jews in Germany, for her committed fight against anti-Semitism and racism. We are delighted that Iris Berben has accepted the German patronage for the United Buddy Bears exhibition in Jerusalem and consider it a great honour for our international unifying project.
