Chamshushalayim (or Hamshushalayim) – Is a play on the Hebrew for a long weekend (itself a play on the Hebrew for Thursday & Friday) and Jerusalem is now a regular feature of the Jerusalem year. For four weekends this winter Jerusalem is putting on a series of special activities – covering all points in the cultural spectrum.
The Chamshushalayim weekends are 29 November and 6, 13, & 20th of December.
There are literally hundreds of events at museums, concerts, tourist attractions, street fairs, dance performances, exhibitions and the list goes on and on.
So why not take some timeout and visit Jerusalem for a day or a weekend over the next month?
A full program can be found on the official Chamshushalayim website at Jerusalem Hamshushalyim Weekends
