Hello, I am going to be in Israel for work in the early part of January and would like to know how to get hold of Armenians there. As I understand most Armenians are probably in Jerusalem, perhaps not. I am going to be mainly in Tel-Aviv, is there anything there? I would like to visit the Armenian Quarter in Jerusalem, but would prefer to talk to get in touch with somebody who can give me a little tour wink.gif. Let me know, thanks.

One of the members of this forum "15 levels" I believe lives and works in Tel Aviv as a graphic artist.

Karakash, your site does not open.
Consider this;
http://armenianceram...tory-World.html

As it was mentioned Ruben Malayan lives and works in TelAviv. His nickname at HyeForum is 15 Levels.
Besides, there is an Armenian convent in Jaffa/TelAviv while the bulk of Armenians in Palestine live in or around the Vang, St. James Convent in the Armenian Quarter of Jerusalem.

Arpa:

The first link, about the Balians; could they be the remnants of the great Balians who build palaces and churches in Istanbul? I wonder; but they are also in pottery. Their works are wonderful, especially the ceramics.

It should work - I just tried it.

There were three great pottery families who came to Jerusalem - Ohanessian, Karakashian and Balian. Ohanessian stayed until 1948 and the Karakashian-Balian joint workshop lasted from 1922 to about 1964. Since 1964, the families have worked separately and continue to work to this day. Our family was in the December 1927 issue of the National Geographic Magazine in a piece on Jerusalem. We have hundreds of their works in our home, a few from the time they were in Kutahya. The Israeli goverment even issued stamps in their honor in 2003. This is all listed at www.jerusalempottery.biz and also at http://www.uwic.ac.u...04/armenian.htm. That link has a wealth of information. Don't fall for the copied ones - only the Karakashians and Balians are the original founders that still work. Sandrouni copies everything and the rest are mainly machine made and cheap.
