Two days of artistic happenings that offer a breathing space during these challenging times – events born out of sincere reflection on the situation since those days, and on our place at this time. A gathering of hope, light, and life, taking place on the seventh and eighth nights of Hanukkah.

The “At This Time” events will take place on December 13-14 (Wednesday and Thursday) in three locations – HaMiffal, Mazkeka, and the Sam Spiegel Cinema. Events include film screenings, music performances, candle-lighting ceremonies led by artists, performance art, a local print shop, and simply a space to meet, to find comfort and be together. Entrance is free to all events.

Artistic Direction: Naomi Shalev and Avital Wexler / Mazkeka Content Curation: Keren Ofer and Ofer Tisser / Sam Spiegel Cinema content curation: Yehuda Bogomolny, Shiri Furst and David Be’er / Production: Shira Sendik / Technical Production: Ehud Lax / Branding and Online content: Studio Rosetta / Graphic Design: Tal Harada

 The “At This Time” events were created with the help of the Young Adult Authority of the Jerusalem Municipality.
