The Jerusalem Foundation was founded 40 years ago by the legendary Mayor of Jerusalem, Teddy Kollek. The Foundation has a long track record in creating and nurturing philanthropy projects in Israel.
The Speaking Art Festival was initiated by the Jerusalem Foundation in 2004. The Festival takes place during December (celebrating the winter holidays of Judaism, Christianity and Islam: Hanukah, Eid al-Adha and Christmas). The goals of the Festival are professional enrichment, acquaintance with others in the field, and learning via workshops led by some of the best known people in the field.
