the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra is inviting the public to an especially rhythmic Purim party for the whole family. Guy Feder will host the Tremolo Percussion Ensemble who together will take the spectators on a journey following the percussion. The percussion is the ancient sound that has been beating in our lives with music generated by nature through man made sounds. You will also witness a duel between two solo percussionists and their mallets.

The concert will feature works by Beethoven, Bartók, Vivaldi, Strauss… and more surprises!

WHEN: Wednesday, Feb 24th, 2021 at 17:00

The botanical garden is offering an experiential tour where visitors will discover how plants celebrate Purim and disguise themselves all year long, such as the bee orchid that disguises itself as a female bee to attract male bees for pollination or the bird of paradise, a wondrous flower that looks like a bird and more.

The garden will hold an art workshop for making plant-inspired costumes, an award-winning costume contest, a tour of the tropical greenhouse during which the audience is invited to touch, smell and sometimes even taste the plants and their fruits and a tour in the garden train displaying over 6600 species and varieties of different plants from the world that exist in the garden and more.
