More than 80 people attended the exclusive Launch of the Jerusalem Foundation UK exhibition "Higher View" which ran for 2 weeks to June 18th at JW3 in Hampstead. Guests included Jerusalem Foundation Chairman Lord Leigh of Hurley, Israeli Ambassador Mark Regev, Dame Vivien Duffield who opened the exhibition and artists Ezri Tarazi and Haim Parnas. Over 1000 people visited the exhibition during its run with many writing enthusiastically in the visitors book. The exhibition was widely covered in the local and Jewish press.

The Jerusalem Foundation UK was delighted to present this wonderful industrial sculpture exhibition by the Israeli artist Ezri Tarazi highlighting Jerusalem’s demographics.  As well as showcasing some works by Israeli artist Haim Parnas on a similar geopolitical theme. Leading Israeli designer Ezri Tarazi created a series of 10 tables based on the cultural, religious and geographical diversity of Jerusalem. Tarazi's Jerusalem Tables are each shaped like the same map of the walled Old City – a site that has had a turbulent history.
