Programs and Activities

Hamshushalayim at the BLMJ

( Program in Hebrew )
 
The Museum will be open at  21:00 - 01:00

 
What did they say of Jerusalem?

Poets, discoverers, authors and wise men, have thought and wrote of Jerusalem.
This upcoming December, the BLMJ will host artists who feel the beat of this city in every bone in their body. Together, we will ponder about the spirits and agendas of the city that for many people around the world symbolizes the spiritual center of the world.
Every jam will be inspired by another quote and will include different artists.

Jerusalem / here I come / I'm returning to you / I swear to you that you’re the only one" Hadag Nachash have sung these words to Jerusalem.

Ensemble Nigun Yerushalmi – playing Psalms | 22:00

This performance will integrate the Biblical Hebrew of the Bible with the soundtracks of all the different countries Israeli people have come from, and the soundtracks of these countries and cultures: traditional melodies, the songs that were sung in the synagogues, melodies of Eastern-Europeans songs that were written in longing for Jerusalem, combined with beats of here and now. This project is an melting pot of sanctity and our everyday lives, east and west, and it is all a tribute to the wanderings, the hopes and the dreams you can find in Psalms.
