I arrive here by accident, when I was exploring Jaffa. I entered the museum, a cute cat was sitting on a chair when I arrive, the staff there is great, they offered me spiced coffee and even gave me the recipe of the coffee. I...More

The Artisan is Ben-Zion David, an 8th generation silversmith.
The amazing Ofra Haza used to wear his jewelry.
We hope to see you again soon
Their short film of the history of the company was very interesting - especially touching was the original price of 5 coins which were 2 for the jeweler and three to make into the jewelry piece. The jewelry is lovely. There is no pressure to...More

Thank you, dear friend!
We are very happy that you enjoyed your visit here, and found our location interesting and friendly.
And most important - you like the coffee :)
They show you a little educational film about the introduction of Yemenites to Israel and the culture, and give a little free coffee, and then leave you free to look at the Yemenite Art, and maybe purchase. Very nice. Very friendly
when visiting we were offered great yemente coffee, shown a short video explaining yemenite history and of course left with some jewelry. courteous and welcoming, plus they offer VAT refund which is great
I love this place - you always get a warm welcome and great (but brief) explanation of their Yemenite Jewish history, with a personal touch. You can try their amazing spiced coffee, watch jewelry being made, and learn a bit about their culture and background,...More
I visited on a Saturday night. I did not get to meet the owner or see him working but i did get to see some of his works. They are very interesting. We bought a pair of earrings. The price was reasonable and they are...More
