The History of Jerusalem through the Lens of Medicine and Faith Exhibition

Jerusalem: A Medical Diagnosis takes a broad and original look at the "medical record" of Jerusalem, the human struggle for a healthy life in the unique context of the holy city.
"Jerusalem: A Medical Diagnosis" touches on the thousands of years of life in the city through the lens of medical milestones beginning with the days of King David and King Hezekiah until the modern history of Hadassah and Shaare Zedek hospitals.  Medicine in Jerusalem has always been a sequence of apostasy, sickness and epidemic intersected by an overriding story of healing, miracles and faith. This extensive exhibition draws inspiration from stories and medical cases, from doctors and pharmacies in the Old City and the new city, and from the many exhibits that are being shown to the public for the first time. The exhibition looks at the partnerships and contradictions found in the space between miracles and medicine.
