Artist's Description

Constructed in 1874, Mea She’arim was one of the first neighborhoods to be built outside the Old City walls of Jerusalem.
She’arim is synonymous with ultra orthodoxy. This neighborhood is a window into a way of life that was practiced in Eastern Europe several centuries ago. Its religious inhabitants focus their lives on Talmudic learning.
Such devotion to religion and learning brings with it a desire for segregation from less observant people and the changing ideas of modernism.
Me’a She’arim is in another sense both miles and years away.
