Light rising in the morning / Yehuda Gelberg
"The exhibition of sunsets was photographed for about a year, from all over the year, from the same spot, overlooking the Sea of Galilee and the Golan Heights, from the balcony of the house where I live in Tiberias.
There is something fascinating about those moments, when the first morning lights begin to rise and the night begins to recede.
These are magical moments that describe the beauty of Creation, the quiet of the passage between times, the ceaseless color of nature, and the transition from the sounds of the night to the sounds of wakefulness and morning. The experience of looking and lingering in front of these sights brings tranquility, peace and strength that can be absorbed and stored throughout the day in all activities that take place during the day.
The creativity of nature (in colors and shapes) is expressed every day anew, and every day the sun rises new and different from the day before. You can see and experience countless special sunsets."
Photography: Yehuda Gelberg, director of a school for students with special needs (cerebral palsy), who express a wide range of color and beauty by their very existence, despite their harsh limitations.
The exhibition hangs from 2/9 until 10/10.
The exhibition is open from Sunday to Thursday from 12:00 to 21:00, Friday and holidays eve from 10:00-15:00.

"My house shall be called a house of prayer for all the people" (Isaiah, n). In our project we chose to present the vision of Jerusalem as a religious cultural center for all peoples of the world. This is done by means of graffiti and painting by six figures from different cultures who, with a blessing of peace, "Namaste", greet the visitors of the station. The project seeks to create a connection and closeness between people, and in its composition to warmly envelop those present.
