Somewhere between the melting pot and the pluralistic society lies Israeli culture. Like her famous mosaics whose ancient scenes are brought to life by the assemblage of many colored tiles, so is Israel's cultural landscape the composite of the heritages and influences gathered in her midst. Situated geographically at the junction of east and west, with a population of wide and varied ethnic groups, Israel has begun the process of fusing these distinct elements into a culture that is uniquely Israeli, one that both respects and honors age-old traditions while continuously renewing the creative process in all fields - the plastic arts, dance, theater, music, film, literature, architecture and design, to name but a few.
