A rare find we stumbled upon in The Jewish Quarter in the Old City. There was a corresponding original painting to match each of the 189 psalms. There were paintings that did not deal with psalms but had deep meaning. The gentleman that runs the...More

Waking past I came into this store/ museum. Bright and full of committees, the paintings on display are by Rabbi Herbert who has since passed. To have the psalms pour into canvas takes on a different meaning. Walk in to be blessed a bit more...More

Well, I didn't really have an experience. I rated this attraction "average" but that's a weighted average. From speaking with friends, this is supposed to be very worthwhile, however, I never actually got to visit because this site has moved and never updated their information...More

Visit this jewel while you can still meet the artist Dr. Berger who is in his nineties. His work is a treasure and amazingly reasonable.

I wanted to visit Beit Ticho (which was closed for renovations) and got to this small museum by chance. The collection includes 150 paintings by Berger, each relating to a different psalm. A good introduction was given at the entrance. In all, an enjoyable experience.
