Shuk Machane Yehuda:- Jerusalem’s Great Street Art Gallery 1…

Shuk Profiles 7

I recently visited Shuk Machane Yehuda in Jerusalemwhich is the largest shuk (market) in Israel. I went on the Sabbath because the shuk is deserted, all shops and stands closed and secured, and the security gates are lowered, to reveal wonderful ‘street art’ in a relatively empty and quiet universe.

I first learned about this gallery in progress, from a video that was shared with me (see link at end of blog). Those who know me, know, that  at my first opportunity I was going to make a visit. Last Saturday, Eileen went hiking in southern Israel for the day and I took advantage by doing some urban hiking on my own.

The artwork is nothing less than wonderful. Likenesses of famous Israelis, as well as the ‘common folk’,  cover the shuttered shops. In this blog I’ll share the first images using ‘Profiles’ as my theme. Hey, I gotta come up with something!

  1. Remember walking thru markets in Jerusalem, but not on Saturday. One of the pictures kind of looks familiar. Still remember it as the best trip we ever took.
