Ein Kerem, the small Judean Hills village on the western outskirts of Jerusalem, is one of the city's bastions of the secular, heavily European culture which used to be dominant in Israel's cultural life, and to some extent still is among the country's upper classes. French and Italian restaurants abound, painters fill multiple galleries with art inspired by Ein Kerem's dramatic landscapes, and providing the soundtrack to it all is The Eden - Tamir Music Center in Ein Kerem (Formerly know as the Targ Music Center).
Founded in the late 1960s by Alexander Tamir and Bracha Eden, a duo of piano performers, the Tamir Music Center specializes in classical music both traditional and more modern, from Schubert to Stravinsky, showcasing performers from Israel's professional orchestras, youth programs and that seemingly-bottomless fount of musical talent, Israel's Russian immigrant community. Most of the theater's shows are on Friday and Saturday, meaning getting there from elsewhere in the city will require planning beforehand.
