I have lived on and off in Jerusalem since 1984 and was fortunate enough to raise my three children here for many of those years. As a mother of teens in Jerusalem and as both an addictions counselor and creative therapist, I have had many ideas about how to help our kids grow up in a safer Jerusalem. One of them was to open a drug- and alcohol-free entertainment center.I realized this dream a couple of years ago by opening Sobar, a drug- and alcohol-free safe musical haven for youth who wanted to jam with their friends, hear music and socialize. Apparently it was not the right time for such an endeavor, though six months of welcoming in dozens of Jerusalem’s teens and young adults proved to many of us the need for such a place.
