Pinsteps. Oded Halahmi Gallery, Jaffa

Oded Halahmi was born in Iraq in 1938. At the age of 13, the Oded family repatriated to Israel and faced the plight of returnees. The beginning of the fifties in the history of Israel was connected with the world’s isolation of the young country, the difficult economic situation and the efforts of the government to solve a number of the most difficult problems: maintaining security, accepting about a million Jewish refugees from Arab countries, building the economy and getting out of political and economic isolation. Under these conditions, young talents often did not find application, and culture and art were a luxury that only a few could afford. When Oded was 28, he entered St. Martin’s School of Art, London, and after completing his studies settled in Toronto, and then in New York. Oded was world famous for his plastic work of a female figure. Main material. Oded works with - copper. Today, the life of the sculptor takes place in New York and in Jaffa. Oded has created a global fund to support young talents and art development. Translated with Google Translate

Здравствуйте! Добро пожаловать в мои экскурсии! Я как-то понял, что погулять с каждым я не успею, гулять в группах мало кому сейчас хочется, а гулять «вслепую» быстро становится скучно. Так и появилась идея записывать маршруты и создавать полноценные путеводители, которые я здесь собираю. Если вы попали сюда, значит вам нужен ключик, чтобы открыть маршрут – пожалуйста! Напишите мне сообщение на телефон +972 537907561 или на epraisman@gmail.com и я с радостью вам помогу! Иначе, зачем я всё это делаю?

Jaffa - from the promenade to the promenade

This unhurried walk from the embankment through the old city to another part of the embankment will allow you to fully understand and feel the old part of the city of Jaffa. Walking along the promenade from the famous ledge resembling the bow of a ship to the customs building, we learn the history of an important port city, and, having understood from the port along the stairs to its narrow streets, we plunge into the kingdom of the east. But not for long will we be accompanied by a sense of fairy tales of a thousand and one nights. The modern history of Jaffa will slightly open the veil on his creative and pictorial side. These are galleries, monuments, sculptures, a constant floating orange and zodiac signs with a wish bridge. We conclude our walk by going down along the house of Simon Tanner to the English part of the port to its restaurants, shops and the famous scales, which served the English customs faithfully in a difficult fight against smugglers. By the way, from the roof of the house of the tanner Simon almost two thousand years ago, Christianity began its journey to Rome. Translated with Google Translate
