The Treasure Theater invites parents and grandparents of young children (ages three to eight) to enjoy the show Five Witches Went on a Walk at 11 a.m. at the Jerusalem Theatre (20 Marcus St.). Although the show is free of charge, patrons must register online and present tickets (up to four tickets per patron). Hebrew only. Book via:


Visit the Bloomfield Science Museum Jerusalem (3 Museums Blvd.) to enjoy the exhibition Microbiota. Based on the 2014 book Gut: The Inside Story of Our Body’s Most Underrated Organ by German scientist and author Giulia Enders, the exhibition teaches young and old alike about our insides. 

The exhibition was created by Cité des sciences et de l’industrie (Museum of Science and Industry) in Paris. Tickets must be bought ahead of the visit. NIS 65 per adult or child; NIS 52 for Jerusalem residents; NIS 235 for a family ticket. 

Also, ask about Kitchen Science, a performance by Dr. Molecula (Ori Weyl) given between Thursday to Saturday in which he and children in the audience explore the chemistry of the kitchen. Visit: to book. 

✱ VISIT THE Khan Theater to watch A View of the Sea, a poetic fantasy written and directed by Shirili Deshe and Vitali Friedland. The 9:30 p.m. performance uses visual theater and body movements to tell the tale of a refugee entering a very stressful country, where he is expected to protect a baby.

Call 052-326-5764 for details.


Visit Once, Freedom, a new exhibition by Erez Uzan at the Jerusalem Artists’ House (12 Shmuel Hanagid St.). Uzan presents oversized oil paintings in which he depicts himself, usually with glasses and a white sleeveless shirt as he toils in his garden. The images may refer to the famous quote from Candide, “One must cultivate one’s own garden,” but also to Uzan’s missing his dog, which passed away recently.

Residing in Kibbutz Merhavia, the artist recently told art writer Ruthi Kadosh that he intends to inaugurate a new artists’ working space in his kibbutz, the same one used by Arye Sartani, who passed away six years ago. Free admission.



Watch the one-woman show Fleabag, written and performed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny), as part of the National Theater Live program. The performance will be in London and simultaneously transmitted to movie theaters around the world. It will be shown locally at the Jerusalem Cinematheque, 11 Hebron Rd., at 11 a.m. 

The performance is focused on a young British woman who muses, “Would you click on me if you saw me on the Internet?” The performance inspired the same-titled BBC television program that ended two years ago. The television show was lauded as one of the best comedies ever produced for mass consumption. Serena Davies of The Daily Telegraph called it “a near-perfect work of art.”

Come see the original. NIS 75 per ticket. Call (02) 565-4333 to book.
