045 The Shelter Gallery

Meeting place: 7 Yehuda Hamaccabi St., Mekor Baruch

A chance to become acquainted with the Art Shelter Gallery that is situated in a bomb shelter in the heart of Mekor Baruch – the first art gallery ever opened in an ultra-Orthodox neighborhood. The gallery, opened in 2003 by Rabbi Uri Zohar and his late brother-in-law, the artist Ika Yisraeli, provided inspiration for the TV series “Shtisel.” 

The hourlong sessions will start next to the first graffiti wall in Mekor Baruch (Grafidos), followed by a tour that will familiarize participants with the way of life of the neighborhood’s residents and its public buildings. The tours will conclude with a visit at the photography exhibition “High Voltage” and a meeting with the artists Eran Gottesman, Miki Spitzer and Nahman Goldstein.

Participants are requested to dress modestly.
