Welcome to Jerusalem!
Stay tuned for information about our newest venture.

Visit us in Jerusalem, the heart of the world! Our spiritual center goes back to the beginning of time. It has been an integral part of Jewish history through religion, culture, thoughts and reflection throughout the generations. So much a part of the Jewish people and so often written about. 

It is our wish to be a part of it.

King Solomon made himself a palanquin of the wood of Lebanon. He made the pillars thereof of silver, the top thereof of gold, the seat of it of purple, the inside thereof being inlaid with love, from the daughters of Jerusalem. Go forth, O ye daughters of Zion, and behold king Solomon, with the crown wherewith his mother crowned him in the day of his espousals, and in the day of the gladness of his heart. (Song of Songs: Chapter 3 Verse 9-11)

אַפִּרְיוֹן, עָשָׂה לוֹ הַמֶּלֶךְ שְׁלֹמֹה–מֵעֲצֵי, הַלְּבָנוֹן.  י עַמּוּדָיו, עָשָׂה כֶסֶף, רְפִידָתוֹ זָהָב, מֶרְכָּבוֹ אַרְגָּמָן; תּוֹכוֹ רָצוּף אַהֲבָה, מִבְּנוֹת יְרוּשָׁלִָם. צְאֶנָה וּרְאֶינָה בְּנוֹת צִיּוֹן, בַּמֶּלֶךְ שְׁלֹמֹה–בָּעֲטָרָה, שֶׁעִטְּרָה-לּוֹ אִמּוֹ בְּיוֹם חֲתֻנָּתוֹ, וּבְיוֹם, שִׂמְחַת לִבּוֹ.שיר השירים, פרק ג’: ט-יב

“If I forget you, Jerusalem, may my right hand forget it’s skill” (Psalm 137:5)

אִם אֶשְׁכָּחֵךְ יְרוּשָׁלִָם, תִּשְׁכַּח יְמִינִי. – תְּהִלִּים פרק 137 פסוק 5

“You are shaking, so am I. It is because of Jerusalem, isn’t it? One does not go to Jerusalem; one returns to it. That is one of its mysteries.” (Elie Wiesel – A Beggar in Jerusalem)

“אתה רועד גם אני. זאת ירושלים, נכון? אדם לא הולך לירושלים, אלא חוזר אליה. זהו סודה ויופייה.” – אלי ויזן – הקבצן מירושלים
