The Jerusalem Fingerprint
The Hansen House Center for Design, Media and Technology, 14 Gedaliah Alon St.
House for reservationInaccessabile Tour
In many respects, the Pro-Jerusalem Society, which was active from 1918 to 1926, shaped the image of Jerusalem as we know it and defined an urban conservation plan that had previously not existed in the city. The Society`s strength and influence stemmed from its diverse membership that consisted of representatives of all the religions in the city, artists, planners, government officials and citizens. Pro-Jerusalem`s activities were articulated on different scales, ranging from ceramic tiles to a municipal zoning plan, and as early as a century ago created the image of Jerusalem as we perceive it today.
During this session on Jerusalem`s evolving conservation policy, parts of the exhibition Pro-Jerusalem – 100 Years of Conservation will be on display. The exhibition was first shown at Jerusalem Design Week 2018 and examined the design-related relevance of the issues that the Society addressed 100 years ago. It also assessed the insights gained from a survey conducted among 100 Jerusalemites who were asked: "What would you like to conserve in Jerusalem?" The discussion held at this session will deal with conservation as the Society viewed it a century ago, compared with the contemporary processes involved in drafting a conservation policy for Jerusalem. It will seek to hear from the general public, Jerusalemites and non-Jerusalemites alike, what is important to conserve in the city. The Jerusalem conservation policy team will describe the work process associated with preparing the plan, its preliminary results and the dilemmas that arose when drafting the evolving policy plan.

The recommendations made by that commission included the Partition Plan, which was ratified in the historic United Nations vote on November 29, 1947. During the War of Independence, the building was occupied by Jewish families and became a front line military post of the Haganah. The hour-long tours will be led by the tour guide Ruti Zuriel (Thursday), Maya Blum (Friday) and Devora Mizrahi (Saturday), all of whom live in the building.

Inaccessabile Tour
Architect: Al (Alfred) Mansfeld, the 1970`s
A rare opportunity to visit the home of Charlotte Bergman, who was one of the Israel Museum`s most important benefactors. The house is located on the Museum campus and was designed to be an integral part of it. It was built especially for Mrs. Bergman at the initiative of Jerusalem`s legendary mayor, Teddy Kollek. From an architectural perspective, the house translates the Museum`s construction language into household uses. The interior design was influenced by Mrs. Bergman`s home in New York and is replete with original works by Braque, Chagall, Dufy, Moore, Picasso, Calder, Maillol, and other artists. It also contains furniture, artifacts and jewelry that Charlotte collected during her numerous trips around the world, some of which she took with her husband Louis, who died in 1955. In its heyday, the house served as a literary and art salon that hosted intellectuals and men and women of the arts.
Charlotte died in 2002 (at the age of 98) and the Museum continues to honor her wish that the house be kept exactly as it was – namely, the home of a late 20th century art collector – just like the period rooms in the Museum.
The tours will be led by Nurit Or from the Israel Museum`s staff and are not handicap accessible.
Advance reservations required; each of the 2 tours is limited to 20 participants.
