All of our work in the realm of art and culture and any others, draws its inspiration from Jerusalem, derives from Jerusalem and tries to influence Jerusalem.


With the help of our annual summer arts festival and numerous other activities, we try to lift up our heads, dissolve boundaries and open up hearts and minds. We try to remember, always, that Jerusalem conquers us, liberates us and enables us to unite around a common love for the city.    


This year, we offer you a concentrated festival comprising, almost entirely, of original productions that will flood the imagination with additional, possible realities. A festival that curates reality through meticulously produced artworks, expands your mind and also tries, wherever possible, to influence that reality in return.


During the three weeks of Mekudeshet 2018—and actually at any given moment—we try to go back to our roots, to the spring or the heart of the city, and to call on everyone who believes—no matter what—to come to Jerusalem, to come find what is sacred for them, to come in peace.
