A visit at a building that was constructed at the end of the 19th century and was later enlarged in the beginning of the 20th century by Franz Lorenz – a member of the Templer community who settled in Jaffa in 1870. For a number of decades, from 1909 to the middle of the 20th century, it functioned as a restaurant and a cultural and social center, housing the popular Café Lorenz on the ground floor and a banquet hall on the second floor (which subsequently became the Kesem movie theater). The building – which was made of local sandstone and Marseille shingles - was one of the first in the city to have electric lighting powered by a generator. It recently underwent renovation and restoration that were completed in 2012. The building is now home to the Neve Schechter Legacy Heritage Center for Jewish Culture. Two exhibitions are currently on display there: "Restless" – a solo exhibition by the artist Shy Abady, and a multidisciplinary exhibition by the Midrash Yotzer group.
