If you've ever spent a casual day in Tel Aviv, chances are that you visited the artists' promenade, Nachalat Binyamin, known for its craftsmen, particularly during the Tuesday and Friday street fairs. The closed-off pedestrian promenade, which begins just across from the trendy Sheinkin neighborhood, runs parallel to the legendary Carmel open-air market. This Pessah, from March 30 to April 10, more than 300 Israeli artists will set up shop at Nachalat Binyamin, competing for the prize of "Best Artist." In honor of Pessah, they have put together an exhibit called Kiseder, featuring their own visions of a Seder chair. Both artists and artisans will be selling their wares, of course. Working in materials ranging from wood, glass, plastic, paper and stone to cloth and metal, the artisans make everything from decorative clocks to jewelery, making this the place for original gift shopping. As on previous Pessahs, there'll be mimes, musicians and fire-eaters. If you're looking for a more culinary experience, find your way to a kosher-for-Pessah Druse tent. Pessah hours: today (Friday) and Sunday (April 1), Wednesday-Friday (April 4-6), Sunday (April 8) and Tuesday (April 8 and 10), from 10 a.m to 5 p.m.; Monday, April 2: 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Details at (03) 516-2037, (03) 516-9580, www.nachalat-binyamin.com
