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.Tongues of Fire
A journey that begins with some local clarinet, moves on to some street rhythm and base and ends in a cemetery.

Dissolving Boundaries, Mekudeshet’s flagship event, attempts to turn Jerusalem and the people who make up the city into raw material. To draw from a reality that exists 365 days a year in order to create an artistic experience that unfolds along the seamline between documentary and performance. It identifies, highlights, strengthens and accentuates the phenomena, places and people who make Jerusalem into a living laboratory that seeks out creative solutions to Jerusalem’s most daunting challenges. And then creates from all of this original thought and activism a work of art that also creates change—in consciousness and on the ground.
In the night journey, one of the six meetings with the different participating personalities will be in English
