Looking for the bombshelter- turned-art-gallery known as the Art Shelter in the haredi neighborhood of Mekor Baruch, I stop to ask a group of girls for directions.

The girls, all wearing school uniforms (light blue blouses and dark blue, pleated skirts), know immediately what I’m looking for; one of them comes along to show me the entrance on Yehuda Hamaccabi Street.
