Travels to Yemen Exhibition at The Museum of Islamic Art Jerusalem



Travel to Yemen Exhibition

The LA Mayer Museum for Islamic Art in Jerusalem is currently hosting a photo exhibition – Travel to Yemem through the lens of Naftali Hilger 1987-2008

 

Yemen is still a relatively closed country; infrequently visited and not well understood by many of us. It has unique architecture and a rich Jewish heritage. Indeed Yemen is still the host of a small Jewish community until the present day. The Jewish community is believed to have been founded shortly after the destruction of the Temple in 586BCE.



 

Yemen was well known for its spices and because of its strategic importance it was settled by the Ottoman Empire and later by the British.

 



The Travels to Yemen exhibition promises to provide a fascinating insight into Yemen.

It is easilt accessible from many of the hotels (a short walk) around the corner from the official residence of the President of Israel. Well worth a trip. For families there are often workshops (over school vacations and chagim) to keep the children busy. See our entry on the LA Mayer Museum for Islamic Art in Jerusalem
