Located on a quiet road in the wooded part of Ramot Bet, the yard of the Media Center resembles those of other Jerusalem preschools. Upon closer inspection, one notices that in addition to standard equipment, there is an old-fashioned photo camera on a stand, a zoetrope, and a praxinoscope – the latter two are obsolete animation devices giving illusions of motion.

“Things are not what they seem” in this yard. This is one of the important messages of the “Magic of Photography” (Kismei Tzilum) program, one of three developed by Ayala Chimilevski, the director of the Media Center and one of its founders.
