If you want to get yourself better acquainted with this culture, experience a truly joyful memory or simply enjoy some nice music while you are in Jerusalem I cannot recommend it more. Leave yourself to the hospitality of Mr.Burstein and his friends for an hour and a half and add an unforgettable experience to your visit.

I experienced hospitality, unique and authentic.
I heard about this place by chance and found it in the dark of a February night near the central bus station. It was more like being part of the family, beeing a good guest for the whole evening.

This is a typical yiddish/klezmer athmosphere, but there is English speaking.

Wonderful music and entertainment. I go there every year when I visit Jerusalem

Burstein and his band(s) do a great job of initiating newcomers to klezmer and yiddish songs. This is done also together with serving delicious yiddishe 'tapas' while you listen to the music. A warm, fun and welcoming place to all (religious and non religious, Jews and non Jews, all are welcome).

This is a small place with great ambiance , Klezmer music, Yiddish singing, folk dancing. The bottle dance is out-of-this world, you have to see it to believe it.
