It was a long summer, and the holidays are coming right up: perfect time to enjoy Jerusalem's culture events, shows, and restaurants. Following are some recommendations
For one long weekend (18-20 September), the city opens its houses, so that anyone who wishes can be introduced with the city's architecture and stories. Visitors are invited to enter extraordinary private homes, meet the residents, join history tours, and visit churches and special structures, thus to discover the city of Jerusalem in a different, exciting way.

A new exhibition at the museum, And the Trees Went Forth to Seek a King, which will be on display until 13 December, 2014, deals with the complex relationship between the ruler and the ruled.
