Jerusalem's top events for the week of April 19th
Passover is behind us, and there's still a week to breath easy before
Independence Day barbecue smoke fills the air, but there's plenty to do
around town in the interim.
Today is Yom HaShoah, Israel's national day of mourning for the Holocaust. Two unique ways to honor the memory of those that perished this week include a debut performance of Victor Ulmann's Symphony No. 2 at the Jerusalem Theatre and a literary evening dedicated to the works of Holocaust survivor and author Ida Fink at Beit Avi Chai.
However, the somber day ends at sundown and will be followed by a
week of fun events. Actor and television presenter Guy Zu Aretz and his
brother Roy, a musician, sing Ladino songs and poems at the Tower of David Museum on Friday, and Beit Shmuel looks ahead to Independence Day at its Saturday morning workshop for children. Read on for the full roundup of recommended events this week in Jerusalem.
