Every summer, Jerusalem residents and visitors enjoy a broad range of cultural events and festivals, yet three of them stand out: the Jerusalem Israel Festival, the country’s most veteran and prestigious official cultural event; the bold Oud Festival; and Mekudeshet, a relative newcomer to the scene, but in some ways the most challenging.

The Israel Festival is the most senior of the events, but with Eyal Sher stepping into the general director position, a significant transformation is under way.
