A unique combination
of quality Israeli creation, Zionism
The Megemeria School of Jewelry & Art is based in the beautiful and newly renovated Yvel Design Center (YDC), home to the Yvel jewelry factory and offices. The YDC is located along the road leading to Jerusalem in a modernized architectural complex fully incorporating a winery built over 160 years ago.
Yvel offers organized tours of the YDC and tourists from around the world are welcome to visit year-round.
The Megemeria School of Jewelry & Art
Megemeria School of Jewelry & Art was established in 2010 as a philanthropic effort to better the lives of Ethiopian immigrants to Israel. Here you will observe the students at work and have the opportunity to purchase the unique handcrafted jewelry to help support the continuation of the school.
The Megemeria Craft Center
The life, culture, story and journey of Ethiopian Jewry come to life in The Megemeria Craft Center. Indulge your senses with the music, smells and sights of a far-away Ethiopian village in a unique experience of tradition and faith. Explore traditional works of art and jewelry and enjoy a traditional coffee ceremony.
As you make your way indoors you will have the pleasure of relaxing in the Yvel Theater. There you will view a 3-D ﬁlm exploring the remarkable process of pearl formation and the jewelry manufacturing processes at Yvel.
Megemeria’s Ambassador Daniel Sahalo is available for speaking engagements, trunk shows, and events. We invite you to plan a meaningful event showcasing the designs of our students!
