Call the Karaite Jews Heritage Center and book a special meal based on the rich culinary legacy of this unique group among the Jewish people. Due to their understanding that the Torah received on Sinai is complete, with no additions needed, Karaite Jews celebrate the Passover Seder with a special bible-based menu composed of grilled meats, green leaves, and flatbreads instead of the usual matzot. Wine, for example, is not included, as it is a fermented liquid. Visitors to the Old City of Jerusalem may contact the center and enjoy these dishes and more as part of a special offer ahead of the Passover holiday. 8 Karaite St. NIS 20 to visit the center, which includes a museum. The price of the meal is to be discussed based on the number of guests and their needs. Call (02) 628-6688 to book.


Watch the Gesher Theater production of The Patriarchs and the Matriarchs, written by Meir Shalev. The satire offers a wide-scope adaptation of the biblical fathers and mothers. Awoken after a 3,500 years' slumber in the Cave of the Patriarchs, these heroic and deeply human characters deal with their respective family issues, faith, and the modern world which they see for the first time. Hebrew performance shown with Hebrew and Russian subtitles. Jerusalem Theater, 20 Marcus St. 90 minutes without intermission. 8:30 p.m. NIS 110-NIS 220. Call (02) 560-5755.
