Summer in Jerusalem means lots of free culture, music, entertainment in the streets.
Every August the Museum of Italian Jewish Art puts on a 3-day festival in their courtyard.
See my last Friday posts for more about it.
Gates opened at 6:00 pm and the crowd grew as the sun and the temperature went down.
And tall bottles of chocolate liqueur. Yum!
The roving commedia dell'arte actors raised a big smile from the chocolate girls.
Another counter was offering bowls of steaming pasta in sauce.
Near the Italian-language book stall was a table full of wooden Pinocchio figures.
I mostly heard the music from inside the museum (entrance having been reduced to only ten shekels, about $2.60).
Part of the museum is a functioning synagogue with furnishings from the Conegliano Veneto Synagogue, built in 1701 in the small village between Venice and Padua.
More about that in a future post.
