About three years ago, a new concept in the realm of popular culture burst onto the scene in Jerusalem. The new concept turned the city’s central market, Mahaneh Yehuda, into a sophisticated cultural venue, where merchants, customers and audiences of all strata mingled with new trends in culture.

People came from far and wide to experience this new wonder – a market transformed into a cultural attraction.
