2018 November- December News


This November we celebrated the first Anniversary of China Cultural Center in Tel-Aviv. We

finally launched our new website, summed up the past year, made a toast to the upcoming

year ahead. The best part of course, was the incredible concert of the pipa player Prof. Zhang

Hongyan with her students who played traditional Chinese music with contemporary touch.

 התחלנו את חודש נובמבר בסערה לאחר חגיגות ציון שנה להקמת מרכז תרבות סין בת"א. למי שלא זוכר מלבד השקת האתר, סיכום אירועי השנה שחלפה והרמת כוסית, גם נגנית הפיפה ג'אנג חונג יאן ותלמידיה פינקו אותנו בקונצרט "מילים שמתנגנות להן" - מזיקה מסורתית עם נגיעות עכשוויות.

November has come to it’s end, and if you know us well- you sure know it’s our date night movie

time! this time we brought you Chen Kaige’s film- “Monk Comes Down the Mountain”.

Did you miss this? don’t worry! Our Cinema East- lecture& film screening series will be here

every last Wednesday of the month.

As forecast predicted, December has started with a storm. That didn’t bother the contestants in the

“Ambassador’s Go Cup 2018” we hosted in our center, in cooperation with the Israeli Go Association.

Go or Weiqi (围棋) is a Chinese traditional board game, one of the most ancient in the world. We were

honoured to host one of the most prominent players today in China Master Zhang Wendong, who also

delivered us a lecture about current trends in Weiqi at the AI age.

And the winner is….

Hanukkah, Christmas, Eid al-Adha- we love this time of the year! As every December, we took part

in the Holiday of Holidays Festival in Haifa with a show that attracted hundreds of visitors. Between

the trees and decorations, you may have noticed the colourful performance of the ensemble Hebei

Provincial Academy of Art. After the festival, they came to our center for a final music and dance

show! Here’s a taste:

This December we were also honoured to establish the Israel-China Studies Association (ICSA).

The top Israeli researchers in the field and guests from the Chinese Academy attended the

inauguration event.

And finally, we closed the year with the film “The Nightingale”.

2018 has been a year of new beginnings! May the new year will be full of surprises!

China Cultural Center wishes you all a Happy New Year 新年 快乐!
