Hi Everyone:
Two items:
The first won’t interest you unless you like at least one of the following: Design, art, architecture, technology, engineering, Jewish History, Muslim history, Jerusalem history…
Houses from Within is a change to get free guided tours of homes, buildings, and major projects in Jerusalem. It’s Nov. 4 and 5, and takes place all over town, including Baka, Talipot, German Colony and Katamon! Some venues require signing up in advance – several are offered more than once. (Note: The “print version” says “catalogeng” but it’s really in Hebrew.
Here’s the LINK

Second, I used my Pardes ID to get a student discount on membership at the Israel Museum – a year’s membership was 124 NIS! Membership includes admission to the museum, Tico House, the Rockafeller Musuem, and several Musuems in Haifa (including the Japanese Art Musuem),  as well as discounts at the Israel Musuem gift shops and cafes and various other perks. The museum is open on Shabbat, and I understand access is Shomer Shabbat, I’ll check it out and let you all know!
Shabbat Shalom,
