out & about Manofim Opening of the Art Season in Jerusalem 2-6 September 2010

For the third year in a row, the Manofim project will be inaugurating the Jerusalem art season, with 26 exhibitions and a variety of art events. The project was initiated by artists working in Jerusalem, in collaboration with galleries, alternative spaces and culture centers, and plays a major role in the independent, vibrant work constantly created in the Jerusalem sphere. The core of this project lays in the will to create platforms and relations, a sort of active networking, between all the people taking part in art and creation in the city, and connect them with the wide audience in Israel and around the world. Much like a living organism, the essence of the project is in the act itself. It lies in the conceptual, creative and practical relations developed between the many people working in the Jerusalem art field. Jerusalem, with all its complexities, confronts the artist with a rich (and not quite simple) reality, which allows a fascinating freedom for a sort of creativity that can only take place in Jerusalem. As part of Manofim - the opening of the 2010 art season in Jerusalem, we will hold a number of events, which will mark the launch of a comprehensive exhibition titled: Alternate History, All Was Foreseen, But the Freedom of Choice is Still Given, which is scheduled for Manofim 2011. Collective Opening Hours for all participating Galleries and Spaces: Thursday 2.9 19:00 -23:00 Friday 3.9 11:00 -14:00 Saturday 4.9 (follow on www. manofim.org) Sunday 5.9 17:00-20:00 Monday 6.9 17:00-20:00 For further information and a full list of galleries: www.manofim.org

Rosh Hashana - Jewish New Years Eve 8-10 September

The Jewish New Year is called Rosh Hashanah. It is celebrated on the 1st and 2nd days of the Hebrew month “Tishrei”, and in fact begins on the 29th (and last) night of the month Elul. This is the only Jewish holiday which lasts for 2 entire days (considered as one very long day), and the reason for this is to emphasize its importance. The High Holiday of Rosh Hashanah celebrates the beginning of the Jewish New Year with festive celebrations. It also is a time for personal introspects through prayer as these are also the days on which God judges people’s deeds throughout the year and decides their future for the coming year. A special custom on Rosh Hashanah afternoon is to walk to an open body of water and shake out one’s pockets and symbolically cast one’s sins into the water. A symbolic meal is an integral part of the holiday with many different foods to delight the taste buds. A favorite is the dipping of apple in honey to wish for a sweet new year and the eating of pomegranates representing the

commandments of the Torah. Rosh HaShanah in 2010 will start on Thursday, the 9th of September and will continue for 2 days until Friday, the 10th of September. Note that in the Jewish calander, a holiday begins on the sunset of the previous day, so observing Jews will celebrate Rosh HaShanah on the sunset of Wednesday, the 8th of September. During these two days, shops and businesses are closed and you are invited to join in these days of rest and the holiday spirit.

Yom Kipur 17 - 18 September

Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement) is one of two Jewish High Holy Days. The first High Holy Day is Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year). Yom Kippur. 25 Hours of fasting and prayer, falls ten days after Rosh Hashanah on the 10th of Tishrei. This day is dedicated to spiritual repentance and religious Jews, dressed traditionally in white, spend the whole of Yom Kippur day in synagogue. Starting on the first day of the month “Elul” (“Rosh Chodesh Elul”), many Jews get up every night and go to the synagogue, a custom which is known as Selichot. in which they pray for forgiveness until morning comes, and then go to work.


out & about The custom becomes more and more intense, and reaches a peak on the 10 days between Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year) and Yom Kippur, alsknown as the “Yamim Nora’im” (“The Days of Awe”). During these days Jews ask God and each other for forgiveness, and greet each other with the blessing “May you be inscribed in the Book of Life”. This Year, Yom Kippur begins at sundown on September 17th, 2010 (Friday). It ends at sundown on September 18th, 2010 (Saturday). During this period of time, the whole country comes to a virtual standstill with all business, shops and restaurants closed. A distinct and very noticeable phenomenon related to this holiday is the flow of traffic coming to a complete standstill (including all public transport); the roads become a safe and fun place for children to ride their bikes, go skateboarding or roller blading. This is a unique opportunity to stroll the quiet streets (well except for the noise of the younger Israeli population) take in the special atmosphere and listen for the blowing of the Shofar (ram’s horn) signifying the end of this special day.

Art & CULTURE provocative photographer David LaChapelle (b. Connecticut, 1963) is exhibited in Israel for the first time, giving a comprehensive view of his unique and daring style of the past twenty years. Alongside familiar subversive photographs originally commissioned for fashion and celebrity editorials, the show explores LaChapelle’s personal projects, created recently as part of his artistic and critical expression. Here he seeks to juxtapose contrasting concepts through their visual representation: hope and despair, growth and devastation, renewal and degeneration. He creates uncommon combinations, surprisingly mixing familiar symbols with anonymous models, creating oxymoronic pictures of the beauty of destruction and the glamour of disaster. The photographs are often laden with symbols and metaphors from devout Christian iconography through the blunt pornography of overdoses and street gangs. LaChapelle takes the photographed image to the extreme of a blunt cliché, which almost collapses into a perfect grotesque due to the redundant color and exaggerated processing; surprisingly, beyond the excess, human gestures and unexpected vulnerability are revealed. Tel Aviv Museum of Art Larry Abramson: Paintings 1975–2010 A comprehensive exhibition of

The Renovated Israel Museum, Jerusalem

paintings by leading Israeli artist Larry Abramson (b. 1954). Abramson's work comprises mostly of series centered on one leading motif, e.g., The Black Square, The Yellow Square, Anatomical Paintings, Nevo, Columns, Beams, tsooba, ShalomShalom, The Pile, Rose of Jericho; and the most recent series, Yechiam, Home and Panic. Over the years, the series have accumulated more and more images and contexts that serve Abramson as linguistic units, recurring in his work to create each time new painterly sentences. Abramson began painting

in the mid-1970s, concurrently with the appearance of new artistic forms in Europe and the USA, especially "New Painting," which challenged the conventions of conceptual and minimalistic neo-avant-garde. Against this background, as an artist challenged by art history and theory, Abramson constructed his painting as a form of inter-era hybrid-painting; painting which, on the one hand, refers to values from the past, yet on the other hand offers an alternative system of ideas and concepts centered on the desire to rehabilitate painting as a relevant medium for the

Art & CULTURE expression of the complicated reality of this place, where he lives. Yadid Rubin: Plowed Color Yadid Rubin's paintings offer a new syntax of landscape, which does not correspond with the concepts of subjectivity, intimacy and authenticity through which Israeli art has woven its identity. This is landscape delighting in the "decorative," the "synthetic" and the "beautiful"—terms that were unmentionable for many years in Israeli art's inner circle; these are landscape paintings in which the sense of place and its absence exist side by side, composing a new reality. The exhibition sets out Yadid Rubin's work since the late 1960s. Alongside chapters from his early work—conceptual works and units of paintings of kibbutz life, studio interior and landscape, the exhibition includes paintings from the late 1980s until today, as a crystallized unit: landscape scenes from his life, including field, house, tree, path, horizon line and sun in countless Please note that the events listed in this section do not cover all the cultural activities taking place during this period in Israel’s major cities.

JERUSALEM New EXHIBITION A Must Visit to the renewed Israel Museum in Jerusalem In the past month , The Israel Museum, Jerusalem, inaugurated its renewed 20-acre campus, featuring new galleries, orientation facilities, and public spaces, The three-year expansion and renewal project was designed to enhance visitor experience of the Museums art, architecture, and surrounding landscape, in complement to the original architecture and design of the campus.

SHOPPING & FASHION Take a piece of Jerusalem with you

The Moriah Collection Magnificent jewelry set with original stones from the Temple Mount

Jerusalem, sacred to three religions, has always been the center and heart of the Jewish people and the focus of their longings in exile. Its glorious past, its tumultuous history and its supreme sanctity make Jerusalem a spiritual center worldwide. Inspired by the city and its symbolism, the IDC (Israel Diamond Center) group, specializing in design, manufacture and trade in precious jewelry and diamonds, is launching a collection of opulent jewelry inlaid with original stones from the Temple Mount - the Moriah Collection. This collection is the first of its kind in the world with a registered patent, since the jewelry is inlaid with original stones from the Temple Mount. "Take a piece of Jerusalem with you" - the slogan that accompanies the Moriah collection expresses the fact that anyone, whoever they may be, can take a ‘piece’ of Jerusalem, the holy and eternal city, and place it on their heart. Each item of jewelry in the Moriah collection is designed and made by hand, projecting a potent message through the unique combination of materials that represent the power, the value and the sanctity of Jerusalem: diamonds - the hardest and most precious stone in the world, gold - the noblest of metals, and Jerusalem stone from the Temple Mount - the holiest place in the world for more than 3000 years. IDC's jewelry designers have retained the raw integrity of each stone from the Temple Mount in order to preserve its originality, suffused with sanctity and symbolism. The Moriah collection is made up of items in a limited series, the number of items in each series being around 7, a number of special significance in Judaism. The name Moriah, chosen for the new collection, refers to Mount Moriah where Abraham bound his son Isaac for sacrifice - which is the Temple Mount on which the temple was built in Jerusalem and from which the stones in the jewelry were taken. A few years ago, the Waqf carried out

expansion work on the Temple Mount and a large quantity of excavated material was removed. In 2004 a tent was set up in Emek Tzurim, at the foot of the Mount of Olives, in which to sift through the excavated material from the Temple Mount. From this came dozens of coins, pieces of jewelry, clay lamps, mosaic stones, pottery shards, glass and stones from the Temple Mount from which the Moriah collection was made. Each piece of jewelry sold at IDC carries an international gemology certificate from leading global institutions such as IGC, EGL, GIA, and so on, and buyers receive full and accurate documentation for every diamond purchased.

The IDC customer base mainly comprises buyers from abroad, especially from the countries of the former Soviet Union and eastern Europe, as well as tourists from western Europe, the United States and the Far East. The showroom is set up accordingly, with sales people who speak a number of different languages. The company has a Russian language website, and will shortly be putting up websites in additional languages. The website is popular among existing customers, who use it to place repeat orders. Along with the launch of the Moriah collection, there is also a designated website for the collection at:

www.moriah-collection.com Avi Tavisal, CEO of IDC, says that “as a native Jerusalemite, eighth generation in Israel, the Moriah collection is very special for me because it represents an emotional combination of materials, design and art. The pieces of jewelry arouse a sense of spiritual elation in every viewer." Tavisal adds that "even before launching the collection list, we were asked to design individual pieces of jewelry created especially as gifts for world leaders and personalities." Plans are currently underway between IDC and the Ir David (City of David) tourist site in Jerusalem for designated items of jewelry from

the Moriah collection to be designed for Ir David, incorporating design elements relating to David's city such as David’s harp, the king's palace, and so on. The Moriah collection has been designed and produced by IDC under the Tavisal label, combining new and old, art and advanced technology in

The Container Art space, Bar & Restaurant Old Jaffa Port, Wearhouse #2 The Container is an industrial warehouse space that has been converted into an art project space, bar and restaurant, located in the Old Port of Jaffa. The Container''s extensive art program features national and international artists that have been invited to make site specific works for the space. The Main Space gallery of The Container is an industrial warehouse space. Not a museum or a sterile gallery space, the art is in competition with its environment at The Container, it needs to find its own and excel within the dynamic platform. And no space is wasted at The Container. The restrooms have been utilized for a project space named Public Life. This is a space for younger artists, or those with a sense of humour and fun, who are interested in sharing their works in a mini project space at a time when our clients are alone. The most public, the most private. Old Jaffa Port, Wearhouse #2 Tel: 03-6836321
