got the most views in one day for a RJS post.
But, 15 Real Photos of Arab Girls is still going strong
and will soon go over 100,000 views.
Too bad all my numbers are not that impressive.
So what is there to see in Jerusalem, Israel, now that the holidays
and municipal elections are over,
and the campaign signs are slowly coming down?
1. Street art can be found in parking lots
and lines so many streets,
but contemporary art in Jerusalem has a new home.
2. The Jerusalem Biennale, which runs from September 15-October 31,
had its opening in the galleries of the renovated Templar houses on Emek Refaim Street.
3. For the week of October 17-24,
there was Manofim, multiple exhibitions of contemporary art in Jerusalem.
Art critic and art history expert, Gideon Efrat,
gave a talk at Mishkenot Sha’ananim as part of the annual Manofim events.
One woman was sketching during the program,
which was great to see at an art lecture.
Manofim took place in many neighborhoods around Jerusalem,
but I was surprised to find this sign left at the Jerusalem Bird Sanctuary.
Art, art and more art is not what you think of first in Jerusalem,
but I have written before about the galleries in the Jerusalem Theater.
4. Israeli artist Yitzhak Greenfield’s students opened a show at the theater.
People of all ages came to see their work.
Displays are constantly changing and open to public at no charge.
But there is more than art.
5. The Cinema City signs are up,
now everyone can see where the new theaters are located.
6. See and hear, another Oud Festival starts soon.
7. See and learn on Azza Street from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm,
Einstein on Azza is coming on November 1.
Professors from the Hebrew University will give free lectures, along with live performances.
There is so much more, but the last for today.
8. The Jerusalem Knights Festival will be held
on four consecutive Thursday nights starting October 31.
I saw the very first Knight night and wrote
who could imagine that the Crusades could be so much fun?
You may hear in the news about protests,
but how about these other events that are happening now?
There is a big problem though,
with so much to see and do,
how does one see a fraction of the things that are going on?
Now If I could just get people interested in seeing some of this good stuff
and not just looking for Arab girls….
