It is no secret that Jerusalemites from the younger generation continue to relocate to other parts of the country, principally Tel Aviv, lured by employment opportunities, lower rents and house prices. Now the Khan Theater, one of the city’s most venerable purveyors of cultural wares, is aiming to redress the imbalance.

And it is not only born-and-bred locals who are migrating westward down Route 1. The capital’s twenty-something crowd population has ebbed and flowed for some time now, primarily due to the arts education offerings available in the city, provided by the likes of Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, Nissan Nativ Acting Studio and Hazira – Performance Arts Arena. The flux in the local thespian student body is fueled by the cold fact that budding artists come over here for their four-year academic stint, and as soon as they have the sought-after certificate in hand, they hotfoot it back whence they came, to tread the boards in Tel Aviv.
