The heart, the purpose, the laboratory

Mekudeshet is an award-winning, cultural organization that creates original art and music to reimagine Jerusalem from a center of conflict into a laboratory for connection between people of all kinds.


Inspiration, creativity, imagination

Our signature project is an annual, city-specific culture festival that commissions artists of diverse disciplines and backgrounds to grapple with the world’s most sensitive city, producing new work from deep within Jerusalem’s complex reality.

Diversity, innovation, openness

Our creative team reflects the range of Jerusalem’s communities, giving us deep and organic connections to the ground. Ultimately, Mekudeshet creations encourage participants to engage with one another, confront their own blind spots, and appreciate the humanity of those who are different.
