Mekudeshet is an award-winning, cultural organization that creates original art and music to reimagine Jerusalem from a center of conflict into a laboratory for connection between people of all kinds. In this episode, we speak with Karen Brunwasser, a Jerusalem-based civic activist and Chief Strategy Officer for Mekudeshet, to hear about their plan — what do they do, and how do they believe it could change Jerusalem, and perhaps even Israel?
