Chava Bitterman is an Israeli design/lifestyle guru whose shop which she opened in the 80s and which has since been closed, is still considered a milestone in the Israel’s nouvelle lifestyle. Taking my current lecture series in Tel Aviv, Bitterman, who is now in the process of publishing here first book, invited the entire group to a stylish and super generous feast in his magnificent home in Migdal, overlooking the spectacular Sea of Galilee. Her signature style is to be seen everywhere in this cubic two-story house, which is integrated into its rural landscape. A remarkable afternoon experience which merged design with local, ethnic (and delicious) food. The town of Migdal, which I have not visited for many years, was named after the city of Migdala Nunia, home town of Mary of Magdala as it was identified as the birthplace of Mary Magdalene; it a special place in Zionist history, as it was built by the encampment of Gdud HaAvoda workers who built the Tiberias-Rosh Pina road was established there in 1921. It was a spectacular day.
