Description:

 

Dozens of countries and Israeli tourism organizations will participate in IMTM 2009, the international tourism fair to be held on February 11-12 in the Tel Aviv Exhibition Grounds

 

 

Participating in the fair for the first time: Brazil, Panama, Latvia and Montenegro

 

 

 

Tourism representatives from dozens of countries will be coming to Israel to participate in IMTM 2009, Israel's annual international tourism fair, among them Hungary, Bulgaria, Croatia, Poland, Georgia, Romania, Greece, and Cyprus. Participating in the fair this year for the first time will be: Brazil, Panama, Latvia and Montenegro.

 

Many countries see the fair as being very important, and have therefore increased their display area and marketing activities for greater prominence. In addition, many Israeli tourism and recreation organizations will be participating.

 

 

 

Professional conferences will be held in the course of the fair, including meeting on the subject of human resources and the annual conference of the Academic Studies Center and the Derby University extension, this year on the subject of: "Tourism in Israel in the shadow of the crisis - leveraged, grow and prosper".

 

Entry to the fair is free of charge.

 

 

 

Eyal Shmueli, publisher and editor in chief of Israel Travel News, one of the initiators of IMTM, says: "Each year, the number of countries wanting to participate in the fair increases, as does the number of visitors. In addition, we receive many requests from travel agents and tour operators from abroad who want to attend the fair, meet and get to know Israeli professionals, work with them and do deals. All this illustrates the growing faith in Israel, with many travelers choosing specifically to come here for their vacation, while on the other hand the Israeli tourist continues to vacation in Israel and abroad despite the economic situation."

 

 

 

=========

 

IMTM is the central annual event of the tourism branch in Israel, and it is intended to encourage incoming, outgoing and domestic tourism in Israel, and increase cooperation with many countries around the world. The fair is being held for the 15th consecutive year.

 

 

Alongside the foreign countries, Israeli representatives are also participating in the fair - tourism associations from all around the country, airlines, hotels, car rental companies, and service providers in the field of tourism.

 

The fair is organized by Ortra Ltd. and Israel Travel News, and is sponsored by the Ministry of Tourism, the Israel Hotels Association, the Israel Tourist and Travel Agents Association and the Tel Aviv - Jaffa Tourism Association.

Description:

A new temporary exhibition entitled Caricatures in Jerusalem and presented in cooperation with the Israeli Cartoon Museum Holon, presenting for the first time works from leading caricature artists who drew inspiration from Jerusalem's people, places, events and everyday life.

 Jerusalem in Caricatures - Shlomo Cohen

According to exhibition curator, Eran Litvin, Jerusalem, with all its complexities and intricacies, is "a paradise for caricaturists. In such an atmosphere, the caricature has the advantage of contemplating with a smile the serious issues Jerusalem imposes on its residents and visitors. There is no limit to the creative thinking and criticism that can be brought to bear on the historical and contemporary events that the city has known."

 

Some sixty caricature artists are presenting works in Jerusalem in Caricatures, including Michel Kichka, Shmulik Katz, Zev Englermeir, Yirmi Pinkus, Amos Biderman. Topical issues and old community concerns both find expression in this exhibition. The caricatures are satirical portraits of the many faces of Jerusalem, with all its problems, complexity and charm.

Hanukka celebrates the miraculous victory over religious persecution in the Holy Land and also commemorates the re-dedication of the Second Temple in Jerusalem and the miracle of the burning oil. This is where the oil of the menorah (the candelabrum in the temple) miraculously burned for eight days, even though there was only enough oil for one day.

During Hanukkah, each day at sundown, Jews light a candle on their menorah and say a prayer. A special candle known as the shamash candle, is used to light the candles on the menorah from left to right. Each night another candle is lit until all candles are buring on the eigth day.

"Whoever maintains that at certain moments there was a mystical atmosphere in the auditorium, cannot be accused of exaggeration. The confidence that Porat radiated, and the perfect cohesion in his presentation, are what brought about this feeling, and the natural reaction to these two attributes was amazement... there are very few concerts like this one..." (Haaretz, December 2006)


"Driven by a divine gift, Chen Halevi overcomes the most perilous technical obstacles. His rhythm reflects his splendor and his exceptional ingenuity. Chen Halevi is the celestial manna in the sterile sky of the clarinet world" (Berliner Zeitung)
