We hold an assortment of various lectures in diverse fields of knowledge such as music, art, world travel, current affairs, history, bible and more at our complexes.

Guided listening to music and concerts: world music, Israeli music, the world of classical music, the in-house choir and more.
Lectures on current affairs, government, politics and more. The Tower residents are knowledge seekers thirsting for updated information regarding events in Israel and around the world. They are ‘political animals’ with firm opinions. These lectures will allow them to remain current regarding matters on the public agenda, conduct heated debates and express their opinion. And do they have an opinion…
The TED concept is innovative and interesting (short, eighteen minute or less lectures on a variety of topics), which is why we decided to create an experience similar to the original format for our residents: innovative, fast-paced sessions, which in one hour, allow exposure to four different fields of knowledge and to cutting-edge new ideas on various subjects related to their content world. This is a unique program enabling residents to expand their fields of interest while exposing them to a unique, fast paced and contemporary experience.
This year, the TED experience heads off to fascinating worlds and will be conveyed by various means.
Together, using the TED online format, we will listen to gripping lectures about various subjects. The lectures will serve as a platform to develop and process significant topics of conversation.
