Twice a year, Jerusalemites and Tel Avivians open their homes and significant buildings to the public for Batim Mibifnim, Houses from Within, part of the Open House Worldwide project. There’s a certain kind of pleasure derived from wandering through neighborhoods and into buildings and homes that you’ve noticed and considered. It’s not for peeping Toms or Tinas, but for those who admire architecture, relate to history, or just like wonderful homes.
These photos are from a regularly-featured Jerusalem House from Within, owned by a French-born Israeli, and located in Baka, a southern Jerusalem neighborhood with no lack of wonderful buildings to admire.
