In the heart of Jerusalem, sits FeelBeit, our magical, spacious culture house.
In a place that is boundless and untethered by conventional norms and perspectives, where three languages (at least!) are spoken daily, we decided to meet. Now, you too are invited to begin and end your day with us.
While the excitement of the previous night is still palpable and just before the vibrancy of the new day takes hold, take a few minutes to enjoy a great cup of coffee and a fresh sandwich or come for a few hours with a book or your computer, alone or with a friend, to sit, chill, think, meet, talk, work – and maybe drink another cup (or a third or a fourth).
Take your coffee to a bench, look for shade, and enjoy a quiet moment in the Symphonic Garden or take Sonaris down to the promenade…
If you look carefully, you’ll see us getting the next big thing ready for you.
As the day draws to a close, we invite you to join us and soak up the brilliant colors of the sunset and Jerusalem’s crisp evening air on the most beautiful terrace in the city.
Sip a drink, warm your hands by the fire and have a bite of something that has just come out of the taboon or from Ahlam and Elad’s kitchen, alongside some of the most interesting people in the city and excellent music.
Expect surprises – something is always about to happen in our home. Any second now, something magical could appear out of nowhere. Every summer evening, something will move your body, heart and mind. It could happen against the open landscape of the terrace. Maybe it will happen behind the bar. In the salon. In our café. It could happen in Arabic, English, Hebrew or Yiddish – but whenever it happens, you will feel immediately that it is in a language that speaks to you.
A 12-hour international musical meeting deep within the city and your soul
Itamar Doari and Alex Tobias (Barcelona) with nine other musicians from across the globe
Árkhō was one of FeelBeit’s peak events in the summer of 2022. Thousands witnessed an extraordinary musical experience unfold before their eyes. This summer, on the eve of Tu B’Av, and wrapped in the light of a full moon, this exceptional cadre of musicians are returning to create music that will open ears and hearts in a one-time performance from sunset to sunrise that will move between the terrace to the house’s multiple spaces and back out to the terrace.
