The mezuzah was affixed to the entrance of the Israeli pavilion at the festival by Israeli Ministry of Culture and Sports CEO Kfir Cohen who recited a prayer for the release of the hostages in Gaza.

The Israeli pavilion at the Cannes Film Festival was inaugurated with a mezuzah affixing ceremony, attended by the Israeli Ministry of Culture and Sports CEO Kfir Cohen.

Before hanging the Mezuzah, Cohen recited a prayer for the well-being and safe return of the hostages in Hamas captivity. He invited those present to sing the prayer “Acheinu kol beit Yisrael” (our brothers of the house of Israel) which calls on G-d to save all Jews who are in captivity and trouble. “Even during happy moments we remember and pray. The people of Israel are alive and well, the Israeli pavilion stands with an Israeli flag flying proudly,” he stated.

On Thursday, a reception will be held at the Israel pavilion signifying its official opening. Invited to the reception are members of the film industry from around the world including producers, directors, and writers. During this main event, many interactions lead to international collaborations in the world of film.
