Last Friday, Hannah Brown (for years the cinema-reviewer of the daily) mentioned our website Tel Aviv Fever in her weekly column CineFile in the Billboard Entertainment Guide of April 2nd. (a Friday Magazine of the Post). She wrote: “…Finally, you’ve seen the movie Ajami, and now you can tour the neighborhood for which the film was named. Frits de Wit,… Read more →
A very loveable article, I did find in the METRO (Jerusalem Post, Friday January 15th) written by Joanna Paraszcur about the Florentin neighborhood in Tel Aviv, founded almost 90 years ago by Greek immigrants: “Florentin – from Salonika to Soho”. The neighborhood is today a new catch for real-estate developers.

Yesterday, I did find this article in the Jerusalem Post (August 27th) by Ruth Beloff about the beautiful, new boutique-hotel: ART+Hotel at the Ben Jehuda Street no.35. She wrote: “…It was food for thought as I entered the hotel and began to absorb the bold colors, soft Jazz and pleasant scent of the lobby…”

An interesting article about the fashion designer Michal Bassad, I did find today in The Jerusalem Post Magazine (July 17th 2009) written by Michal Lando and Mya Guarnieri. Michal says: “My clothes are very organic in that manner, they are not planned, they are intuitive…” and: “My design has become softer over the years…it’s not only about aesthetics, it’s about… Read more →
An article, full of nostalgia, I found in the Jerusalem Post, friday June 26th, written by Bracha Stock: “Window shopping on Dizengoff”. This was the ‘good old days’ without (!) this ugly small viaduct they build (in the 70s) over the once most beautiful (and only square in the world designed completely in the Internationale Style!!) square in Tel Aviv,… Read more →
Last Friday I saw in the Jerusalem Post this large, beautiful advertisement, designed in the old Dutch ‘De Stijl’ fashion, about the Second Exhibition: Contemporary Art from Collections of The Israel Museum, Jerusalem in the Mani House at Jehuda Ha- Leviestreet no. 36. The Mani House ( 1909) was the second house that was designed in Tel Aviv and restored… Read more →
