    Guide

    Tower of David Jerusalem Museum staff

The exhibit “Jerusalem School” presented at the Tower of David and HaMiffal, allows a glimpse at the beginnings of Jerusalem art and its development over the course of more than 100 creative years. Surrounding the exhibit, a number of tours are being offered throughout the city, focusing on art, poetry and the spirited people whose works are featured in the exhibit.

Ticho house is one of the most beautiful and picturesque houses in Jerusalem. The house was built during the 19th century, and was occupied by the Ticho couple – Anna, a painter; and Abraham, one of the most famous eye doctors in the Middle East. Throughout their lives they opened the house to the city’s residents; today it hosts exhibits and displays of the Ticho couple’s personal items.

On the tour, visit the Ticho house, and continue to the streets of the nearby city center. Learn about the art, poetry, and creative people whose works are featured in the exhibit “Jerusalem School.”

Among the places featured on the tour: Bronze doors of the Bikur Cholim Hospital, by Ze’ev Raban; location of Cafe Zichal, the coffeehouse frequented by Leah Goldberg, Else Lasker-Schuler, and others; Music Conservatory on Jaffa St established by Thelma Yellin; bronze doors on the Anglo-Palestine Bank, created by Bezalel artists Meir Gur-Arie and Ze’ev Raban, and others.
