For most of us, South Korea probably still pertains to the realms of exotic pastures over in the Far East. Others may recall the hugely successful M*A*S*H American comedy TV series, back in the 1970s and early 1980s, which told the bittersweet tale of a US Army medical unit in the Korean War of the early 1950s.

If your knowledge of the democratic southern part of Korea amounts to the above, you’re in for an eye- and ear-opener when the 2017 Shalom Yerushalayim Cultural Festival takes place in Jerusalem, Ashkelon and Haifa May 27-June 2.
