New Year’s 2020 Events in Jerusalem

New Year’s 2020 Events in Jerusalem will be updated as soon as they are available. Meanwhile, you can check out last year’s events.

About New Year’s Eve in Jerusalem

There are some naysayers who claim Jerusalem is no place to celebrate New Year’s. Granted, Jerusalem is more low key than other western cities on this holiday – rightfully so considering that January 1st is a regular work day in Israel – but many Israelis love finding excuses to celebrate and so you’ll find some beautiful dinners and fun New Year’s parties, leaving you with quite a few choices of how to commemorate the day that is known in Israel as Silvester.

New Year’s Eve parties!

New Year’s parties take place mainly in the city center at Jerusalem’s clubs and bars.
