Israeli Artists Exhibit at JEA

At one time, you had to travel around the world to find such beautiful jewelry and art work, but this week some of Israel's most talented artists are displaying and selling their work at the JEA, Savannah's Jewish community center. Many of these artists make their living selling their exotic works to tourists, however in recent years, the ongoing conflict in the West Bank has driven many visitors away.

"As a result of terrorism, Israel is lacking tourism," said Motti Locker with the JEA. "Tourists stop coming to Israel, so by this, we are allowing the people who live by tourism to come here to present their work."

The art fair will be at the JEA through Tuesday.
