5-13 LIGHT IN JERUSALEM 2013 – Fifth International Light Festival.
Jerusalem’s Old City is the magnificent backdrop for lighting installations, exhibits and tours. For this year’s Light in Jerusalem festival, seven renowned international light artists will work alongside their Israeli counterparts. This year, the audience is invited once more to participate in a magical, free experience, and enjoy three trails of light: Orange, Green and Blue that will be spread across the quarters of the Old City, tracing a path between the light installations. In addition, a unique fair of light-body designers and colorful outdoor performances will enhance the viewing experience.
