Whisper it. There is a buzz in Jerusalem, an artistic, highly inventive buzz that seems to be gathering momentum. Although most Tel Avivians may not be aware of what’s going down at the other end of Highway 1, all manner of alternative, definitively envelope- pushing endeavor is in full flow in Jerusalem.

The Jerusalem Season of Culture certainly helped get the word out, although this year’s program was severely curtailed by the hostilities down south. But at least the Hahazit alternative music festival went ahead last month.
