The best year of my life

As someone who previously created for the theater ("Billy Schwartz"), the musician Ohad Hitman already knows the work - and the result is evident in his new comedy musical, a joint production for the Haifa Theater and the Hiba Theater, directed by Moshe Kaptan.

With the help of fine wit and humor, the musical captivates the hearts of the viewers and puts a mirror to the daily life and challenges of all of us.

Winter Lights

If the last period was not wintry enough for you, the botanical garden in Jerusalem has been dressed in new lighting, which gives it the appearance of a European market full of lights.

Every evening that the activity will take place in the garden (until the end of January 2023), the tree lights, which are presented in different styles and colors and were created from about 2.5 million small LEDs, will be lit one after the other in a variety of colors.

The garden will also offer a special route about a kilometer long, where visitors can enjoy an illuminated experience just like abroad. If that is not enough for you, actors dressed in illuminated costumes will also appear on the spot - and of course food stalls will also be set up in the spirit of the time.
