HaMiffal is an abandoned 19th century building turned into a communal, creative factory. No, it’s a cultural center that offers everything from a vegetarian cafe to bookbinding classes. No no, it’s an open art collective where anything and everything goes. Well one thing is for sure, HaMiffal is the first of its kind in Jerusalem.What began as a temporary project from the Empty House artists’ group, intended to run for the duration of the summer last year, was extended at least until May. While it is difficult to quantify what HaMiffal is, there is one thing it is not: exclusive. This is quite deliberate.
