Musrara, Family Albums | Residents, students, teachers, artists | Photography 
The department of photography published a call out to all the people that somehow share the territory that is called Musrara. Neighborhood residents, students, Musrara staff, graduates and artists, were all asked to send in photographs from the family album, as part of an artistic process or as an important presence in their lives (weddings, holidays, family events).

Tuesday evening at the Israel Museum, Jerusalem

As conference guests we cordially invite you to a special guided tour of the exhibition:

Herod the Great: The King's Final Journey

The first exhibition entirely dedicated to Herod the Great, Israel's greatest builder and one of the most controversial figures in Jewish history. Large reconstructions and new finds from Herod's palaces in Herodium, Jericho, and other sites are on display. Exhibited to the public for the very first time, these artifacts shed new light on the political, architectural, and aesthetic influence of Herod's rule (37–4 BCE). Herod's tomb – discovered at Herodium after a 40-year search by the late Prof.
Ehud Netzer of the Hebrew University – holds pride of place. The exhibition is held in memory of Prof. Netzer, who fell to his death in 2010 on the site of his discovery.

There will be 3 guided tours leaving from the exhibition entrance at The Israel Museum, Jerusalem at 17.30, 18.00 and 18.30 - pre-registration is required as places are limited

Price 60 shekels (Includes Museum entrance and guided tour)
