If your thoughts ever drift in the direction of the YMCA building on King David Street, or you happen to find yourself driving, cycling or strolling past the magnificent specimen of architecture, you will probably be primarily drawn to its aesthetics.

With its domes, porticoes and bell tower it is, indeed, an impressive edifice which is possibly best known for the cultural activities it hosts, with Jerusalemites, and others from further afield, frequenting such events as the annual Jerusalem International Chamber Music Festival, which has been taking place at the YMCA, in late summer, for the past 20 years.
