Tuesday Night Live

At the beginning of King George Street, next to the Great Synagogue and opposite the Sheraton Hotel is the Heichal Shlomo building. Heichal Shlomo is the former seat of the Chief Rabbinate.



The building serves a few different purposes these days, but the most interesting occurs once a month on Tuesday nights when they film Tuesday Night Live in Jerusalem.



It’s been years since I was in the old theater on the top floor of the building, but there it is, and packed to the gills.

Last night it was a political evening with the Religious-Zionist leaders running for Knesset: Yaakov “Katzaleh” Katz (Ichud Leumi), Moshe Feiglin (Likud/ManhgutYehgudit), and Prof. Daniel Hershowitz (Bayit Yehudi/Mafdal).



I won’t discuss politics, but all the speakers spoke well and the evening was extremely entertaining.

The token NIS 20 entrance fee means this is a great way to inexpensively have a very fun evening in Jerusalem.
