Meah Shearim Yeshiva

Located in the Meah Shearim quarter of Jerusalem, the yeshiva, or Talmud Torah, was established in 1885. During the British Mandate, the building served as the headquarters of the Mizrahi Movement in Jerusalem. The study hall on the second floor has a magnificent painted ceiling with depictions of Jewish holy places, the Jewish holidays, biblical animals and memorials for the deceased. The artist, Yitzhak Beck, carried out the work on special scaffoldings built for him in 1950. He also painted the columns in antique grey-white hues to look like marble.
