The Israel Festival in Jerusalem

The Israel Festival began in 1961 in the smaller city of Caesarea in its Roman Theatre. For the next 20 years the festival grew to include many national talents. Due to the ever increasing popularity of Israel Festival its home moved to the larger city of Jerusalem. It continues to grow and is now host not only to national acts, but loads of international talent too.
