Freedom. A word that arouses and expresses so many positive meanings and ideas – physical, mental, external and internal.

"Freedom – Breathing Space" Art Exhibition
Exhibition Curator, Galit Zimbalist:
“Freedom is a common human dream during the days, weeks, months and years we work so hard. When we go on vacation, we want to relax our aching bodies and calm our tired souls. We want some breathing space, in which we can cut ourselves off from the daily grind in order to recharge our batteries.
Freedom can also be in our awareness, our thoughts and our mental state. For this kind of freedom, we don’t have to leave our homes or search for greener pastures. The aim is to create freedom anywhere that allows us some breathing space and creativity.This exhibition showcases art created with a variety of techniques, including classic photography, treated photography, painting and sculpture.
Participating artists: Michal Greenbaum, Mati Halili, Maayan, Neta Ganor, Ziv Ringer and Jane Luvitan.”
The exhibition will run from May through July, 2023.

The Freedom to Be Happy – Wonderful Wine Evenings in the Mirror Bar
In Mamilla Hotel’s bars and restaurants, we serve 140 different types of the most prestigious Israeli boutique wines from all over the country – from the Negev Desert to the Galilean Mountain ridges, from the Judean Hills to the coastal plain, proudly displaying one of the largest selections of kosher wines in Israel.
Together, the bottles tell the story of wine in the Land of Israel. A story that began 4,000 years ago, experienced challenges, changes and upheavals and is now enjoying an unprecedented Golden Age, in terms of both quality and quantity.
Throughout the spring and summer, Mamilla will celebrate this freedom of growth, tastes and abundance in a number of events:
- Workshops and intimate wine-tastings every Thursday and Saturday night, hosted by leading winemakers from some of Israel’s top boutique wineries.
- Come and savor these award-winning wines, hear the stories about the grapes, the earth in which they flourish and the people dedicated to cultivating the finest wines for you.
- Boutique wines will be served in the hotel’s restaurants with the specials and spring menus.

We all love carbs. Some are more attracted to chocolate or sweet fruits, while others are more drawn to doughs and savory pastries. But why are we so attracted to carbohydrates, and what do they do to our bodies?
In recent years, an increasing number of articles and studies by leading professionals in the world have been published, claiming that diabetes and other metabolic diseases can be cured with a simple nutritional solution, which allows for a reduction in medication and even complete cessation. So, what do they know that your doctor doesn’t?
In the workshop, we will learn how to heal the body with the help of dietary changes.
Held by Erez Bindiger, a personal coach, naturopath, and clinical herbalist (CIH).
The workshop is free of charge for hotel guests and Akasha members

Mamilla Avenue – Then and Now
“From Past to Future” is a tour of what has always been a central, vibrant area of Jerusalem throughout history, on the border between the old and new cities.
With guide Oded Amitai
We’ll hear about and see the area from diverse architectural perspectives, because many great visionaries and architects have left their mark here, from biblical times till the present day – Herod the Great, Suleiman the Magnificent, Teddy Kollek, Moshe Safdie and Alfred Akirov, to name but a few.
We’ll examine the significance of its location on the stormy municipal border between 1948-1967 and meet some Jerusalemite characters who then were children and now are grandparents. We’ll hear about the archeological digs and findings and the comprehensive restoration of the area, formerly a rundown neighborhood rife with crime and now polished into a world-renowned jewel in Jerusalem’s crown. We’ll enjoy the art and the architecture of the Mamilla Hotel, visit its art exhibition and take in the stunning sculptures all along Mamilla Avenue.
Shabbat (Saturday) 11:00-13:00
