Jerusalem After Summer, After Hours

School has started

Posters for summer events in Jerusalem Israel

but the signs for summer events are still up

along the Jerusalem streets.

One of the most popular spots,

summer or winter,

is the Machane Yehuda Market, the shuk.

As the day ends, the food stalls close

Shutters with graffiti in shuk, Jerusalem Machane Yehuda Market

and shutters come down.

The last bits of bread are sold

and empty crates are stacked away.

Then

the tables and chairs come out,

and the loud music starts playing for the night-time crowds.

With special glasses or goggles, virtual shows

are presented at the Music Museum,

Western Wall tunnels virtual tour people in room with goggles on to see show

similar to these at the Western Wall Tunnel tours.

Five years ago, near the shuk,

Mysttorin Theater in performance near Shuk, Machane Yehuda Marker

at a Mystorin Theater performance,

I described them as “out-of-the- box.”

Now, they have gone out of this world.

Gone virtual.

Meeting at night, ‘AfterShuk’

includes three stops with virtual shows.

No photos are allowed during the performances.

It was painful to comply.

Such a shame.

Some scenes I really wanted to share, but I had to settle

  for the above screen-shot from a promotional video.

One of the most amazing things was,

as our group proceeded from location to location,

only the cats seemed to stop and take notice.

People went about their business,

walking, talking, or hanging laundry on a porch above.

Last week I shared creativity of the Start-Up world,

 this week is of the diverse Jerusalem cultural scene.

Another year of the Piyut Festival,

to be held September 24-28,

Kulanu Mekudeshet Jerusalem Season of Culture Festival

and the Jerusalem Season of Culture,

Mekudeshet, and Kulana,

 are major September events.

Around the Jerusalem streets, or in the shuk, 

so much is happening it is hard to keep up,

 there is so much to see and do.

    Hi Sharon
    I finally figured out today how to share your wonderful blog with the Jewish Group here on the island…I’m not so computer savvy, evidement!!!
    Then, I realized that I should have asked you before I sent it out to 100+ people…and, I do apologize if I errored in sending this out to so many. I will not do it again, if this is not what you want…maybe you could send me an email and let me know your wishes…many thanks and shabbat shalom…Hannah
