This week, Helen Mirren is in Jerusalem to host the Genesis Prize, known as “the Jewish Nobel”. Her arrival and various sightings have been covered, as was the press conference for the prize, which will be given this year to Itzhak Perlman. During her stay, Helen has been honored with the Jerusalem of Gold Award for Excellence in the Arts and Humanities by Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat. Barkat then took her to visit the City of David, an archaeological site of ancient Jerusalem, and said Mirren “has inspired millions through her artistic craftsmanship and devotion to bettering the world.” The actress also joined British Ambassador to Israel, David Quarrey, at his residence to celebrate Shakespeare. The pair helped launch ‘Mix the Play’, which is part of a global project to mark the 400th anniversary of his death. The brainchild of the British Council in Israel, the initiative allows people to direct a scene from Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream, before sharing it online. Pictures from all mentioned events have been added to the photo gallery. If you’re able to find additional press coverage, please let me know. Edit: Pictures from the Genesis prize ceremony have been added as well.
