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.

Description:

Travelujah and the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem invite you to join us on September 14th for an exploration of the unique Jerusalem traditions surrounding the Yamim Norai'im, "The Days of Awe” leading up to Yom Kippur.

 

 

The Talmud teaches that "Tshuva" (repentance) was one the seven things created by God before He created the world. In ancient times, the Temple in Jerusalem was the locus of the yearly ritual of national and individual repentance, which would crescendo on the Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur.On this Day, God's forgiveness was attained when the High Priest would enter the Holy of Holies – Kodesh HaKodashim – to offer an atoning sacrifice on behalf of Israel (Leviticus 16:1-5).

 

The first declaration the High Priest uttered in the Temple on Yom Kippur, was "Ana” – I have sinned. This was followed by the rest of the nation of Israel acknowledging their sins and repenting. This day is celebrated because it provides assurance that restoration with God is possible providing freedom from sin, and hope for a positive future.

 

Today the Jewish people still consider Yom Kippur the holiest day of the year on the Jewish calendar and Jerusalem the holiest city. And for ten days beginning with Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year) and culminating with Yom Kippur, the Jewish people reflect on their lives, repent of past wrongs and prepare themselves for God’s judgment on what the coming year will bring.

Description:

Hazira presents an original theatrical dance production based on the story by famed Israeli novelist Shai Agnon. The Mill Owner and the Miller is a Hasidic folktale concerning a miracle performed by Rabbi Motele from Chernobyl, considered the rabbi of both the living and the dead. The story tells of a Chasid who would visit the rabbi every year, but was forced one year by his own poverty to remain at home. And so sit the Chasid, his wife and his sons in a darkened room, their oven extinguished, feeling as yet-unburied dead. The Chasid, unable to bear the sorrow in his house any longer, leaves and prays to the rabbi to come to his aid. All of a sudden he hears the sound of a chariot drawn by four horses and sees his rabbi, Rabbi Motele, sitting in it with one other man. Mystery, miracles, hope and the principles of wisdom fill this wonderful story written in the poetic language of Agnon and staged for the first time with the combination of dance and prose.
