The charming alleyways of the bohemian Nachlaot and ultra-orthodox Mekor Baruch neighborhoods conceal stories about women – religious, powerful women who dared to bend quite a few borders in the society in which they live and work.
The tour leader is Noa Leah Cohen, a doctoral student of contemporary Jewish art. She also manages the first gallery in an ultra-orthodox neighborhood (Mekor Baruch) which was established by the first secular Israeli Jews to become religious: Rabbi Uri Zohar, Mordehai (Pupik) Arnon and Ikka Yisraeli. The tour will start from the Shelter Gallery, and pass by the first ultra-orthodox graffiti wall. After that we will meet Batya Malakh whose work includes creating a new stream in the ultra-orthodox education systems (ultra-orthodox – state stream) which serves as a model for the whole country. Later we will meet ultra-orthodox singer Rika Razael who performs before mixed female-male audiences. The tour through the neighborhoods and to the various locations will be on foot.
