A burst of spirit and sound on the Sherover Promenade
Wednesdays at Tzomet Lev are already one of this summer’s most talked-about and enjoyed events in Jerusalem. A rich program of activities comprising listening, ancient crafts, funky useable art, and heartwarming connections, which brought thousands of people to the promenade and filled its lawns with magic that is growing every week.
