Jerusalem's Story is Your Story – Jerusalem's story as it is reflected in humanity's eternal quest for happiness, self-fulfillment and success through faith. The secrets hidden in the different monotheistic religions lead us to our own personal journey toward figuring out the meaning of life. What stands behind the belief of the monotheistic religions that Jerusalem is the gate of heaven? How did that affect millions of pilgrims to the Holy City as well as world philosophy, art and politics till this day?
Jewish Sacred Art – A presentation showing a millennia old tradition of the Jewish Sacred Art using jewelry, amulets, paintings, embroideries etc. as means for creating holy, safe spaces around the individual, homes, synagogues and other public spaces. The Jewish Sacred Art used the Hebrew letters, biblical verses and symbolism in a way that was common to Jewish communities worldwide along the ages. How can we learn to identify the repeating magical patterns in Jewish Sacred Art that originates in many countries along thousands of years of history? (There is a possibility that a scribe will come to the house and make personalized amulets for the guests, the price of the amulets is not included)
The Secret of the Jewish People – Jews consider themselves as a nation and a religion, however, they never defined themselves, like many other nations, by music, traditional clothing or food traditions. What is special about Jewish tradition? What is the secret behind long years of constant innovations and the miraculous survival of the Jews? How is Jewish tradition defined and how is Jewish wisdom structure? What are the differences between the TaNaKh (the Jewish Bible), the Talmud, the Zohar and the other layers of Jewish Wisdom?
