Annual medieval festival in the Old City of Jerusalem brings troubadours, jugglers, acrobats to the city’s ancient streets.

Performers from the Italian Carnival of Venice joined Israeli counterparts in a festival full of music, fire juggling, plays, crafts, stunts and jousting every Thursday night during the month of November in the alleyways of Jerusalem’s Old City.
