Paradise Inn, Talbiyeh, Jerusalem.
A dream for only one person.
Infinite stars and a real gate to paradise.
Reserve your room at the former Lepers home.
Jerusalem, where any piece of land can become your temporary dwelling.
Paradise Inn is situated in the beautiful gardens of the former Lepers Hospital, Leprosarium Jesus Hilfe , founded as an isolated refuge for leprosy patients. It was created by the German-Protestant Moravian community in 1867 and operated for twenty years in a building on today’s Agron Street, Jerusalem. In 1887 the institute moved to a new building in the Talbiya neighborhood of Jerusalem, planned by Konrad Shick.
“High walls surround and hide the building, constructed in an isolated spot far from the walls of the Old City, and a focus for endless stories about what goes on inside” – these words appear on the page of the historical display inside the hospital. Until 1948 most of the patients were Muslim Arabs, and the nurses Christian. Tawfiq Kan’aan, a Christian Palestinian, was the chief physician from 1919 until 1948. He would arrive at the Leprosarium once a week and was responsible both for medical and research issues, and for international contacts.
Since 1950 until 2007 the Hospital was named Hansen Hospital and was under the Israeli Ministry of Health direction. In 2013 it reopened as Hansen Center for Design, Media and Technology.

The Mamuta Project is a center for artistic creation, encounters, research, and display of art. The Center, is an artist’s run space, developed and directed by the Sala-Manca Group. Mamuta is comprised of artists’ workspaces; video, sound, and electronics labs; a wood, metal, and plastics workshop. The goal of the project is to advance art projects and to create a framework for artists from different media, as well as curators, architects, designers, and researchers, who wish to create in the spirit of cooperation, dialogue, and technological innovation.
Mamuta offers guidance and support for the development of its artists’ individual projects, and initiates and produces projects at the Center as well as at other sites in and outside of Jerusalem—in cooperation with institutions and individuals in Israel and abroad. The project is dedicated to creating conditions for developing an active community of artists, allowing for personal development alongside collaborative work, through an engagement with the place and time.
