Home › Events › Celebrating India in Israel

The Embassy, in co-operation with Teamwork Productions Ltd, organised the third edition of annual cultural festival Celebrating India in Israel, a festival showcasing the wealth of India's classical and contemporary cultural heritage including dance, music, film and visual arts. The 2013 edition kick started with the opening of exhibition "Sari - Timeless Tradition" on April 18, 2013 at Shenkar College of Design and Engineering. The exhibition was inaugurated by Ambassador Jaideep Sarkar and Prof. Yuli Tamir, President of Shenkar College. Curated by Doron Polak, the exhibition offered a rare glimpse into an exclusive collection of saris including ornate Benares brocades, splendid southern Kanjivarams, riotously colourful bandhinis, intricately woven geometrical patterns of ikat and pochampally, story-telling Balucharis. It also included works from several Indian & Israeli artists on the theme of Sari.

The exhibition was followed by national musical tour of Rajasthan Express and Israeli musician Shye Ben Tzur, a Bollywood Film Festival with a selection of Bollywood's finest, recent and popular movies screened in the Cinematheques of Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Haifa, enchanting Odissi dance performances from Nrityagram Dance Ensemble at Suzanne Dellal and Words on Water literary Festival of Indian and Israeli writers in Haifa University and Mishkenot Shaananim in Jerusalem.
