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
The meeting will be in the language we all share, music, between children from here and children from the camp
Children are invited to meet with children from the Harsham IDP & Refugee Camp, which hosts 1,500 families who fled the so-called Islamic State take-over of Mosul. Music teacher, Lapid Woldenberg, will organize collaborative musical activities for children from here and there that will include conversations. After the meeting, you can continue on to the creative activities that will be waiting for you in HaMiffal and maybe send a postcard to your new friends.
