The Jerusalem Municipality presents A Children's Winter: two weekends of family and children's events. The initiative is organized by the Jerusalem Development Authority and the Jerusalem Municipality and produced by the Ariel Company.

The events will take place on the first two weekends in March: March 3-5, 2011 and March 10-12, 2011. The weekends present a unique opportunity for families to enjoy Jerusalem's many family-friendly cultural offerings for free or at discounted prices.

All of Jerusalem's museums will participate, offering discounted admission prices. Family tickets will be available for 60 NIS, and individual tickets for 15 NIS.

Events at The Museum for Islamic Art: Over the two weekends, the museum will offer a great lineup of lively winter events for kids including performances, arts and crafts workshops, and musical performances.

The events will take place on Thursdays, March 3 and 10 and Fridays, March 4 and 11.

On these days there will be special discounted admission to the Museum: 60 NIS per family (up to 5 people) and 15 NIS for individuals. This price includes all performances!


Thursday, March 3, 2011 at 18:00: The Train Theater's Cube Circus. For more information about the show click here.

Appropriate for kids aged 4 and up.

The show is performed as a mime with no words and combines puppets, plastic art and dance theater in the Bauhaus tradition, inspired especially by Oscar Schlemmer's "Triad Ballet" and Galia Levy Grad's book "Tsafuf."

March 10, 2011 at 18:00: The Train Theater's "The Rose is Sleeping."
Based on Sleeping Beauty. Appropriate for ages 4 and above. The show is a unique encounter between an illustrated book and an illustration told as a story. The actress/storyteller creates a miniature theatrical world between the pages of the book. Amalia (the illustration) and Naomi (the book) are two sisters which return to their favorite children's fairy tale and give children an opportunity to peek into the story and the book and flip through the pages of the magical story.

Musical Performances:

Fridays, March 4 and 11, 2011 at 12:00: Journey to the Sounds of the East. Performed by the Nataf brothers. The performance is interactive and will actively engage the audience. The original and unique show is a fascinating journey into the sounds and melodies of Middle Eastern music, including Turkey, Tunisia, Klezmer, and Gypsy. The Nataf brothers use many different instruments both new and old and a wide variety of melodies. During the course of the performance, children learn new melodies and drum to the beat with their hands.

Arts and Crafts Workshops: A wide variety of workshops based on the Museum's current exhibits. Children will have a chance to create musical instruments, clocks, boxes, jewelry, weapons, hamsas, and more.

Each workshop is 45 minutes long. There is an additional fee for the workshops.
