THE FIG TREE

RAEDA TAHA

7 December 2021, 6 PM - 7 PM

Following her long-awaited return to Jerusalem, Raeda Taha takes us on a journey through the memories of families and relatives, the smell of spices, the pistachio vendor, the loud chatter of passersby, the giggles and groans of the alleys and corridors of the Old City. Jerusalem mesmerizes children and adults alike. The streets pull you deeper into more streets, its ancient stones are always just about to speak.
This journey retells our families’ unforgettable stories from the haunting city of Jerusalem.
The Fig Tree is in support of Ahmad and Sirine Abu Ghazaleh.
