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
How is Israel's weed empire run?
Despite the fact that concepts like “legalization” and “decriminalization” are constantly being banded about in the media, as of 2018 the use of cannabis is still illegal. However, an estimated 100 thousand Israelis make daily use of “Telegrass”—a secure platform to buy and sell cannabis that was created by Amos Dov Silver. Journalist, Shir Reuven in a video interview with a person who was born in Safed as a haredi, moved to Jerusalem as a secular Jew, became the poster boy for legalization in Israel and finally found himself managing by remote from the United States, Israel’s weed empire.
