Arthur Rubinstein Scenic Lookout (Mitzpor Arthur Rubinstein)
Location: Aminadav Forest, near the Yad Kennedy Memorial.
Description: A sculpture of a piano keyboard, dedicated to the memory of the renowned pianist Arthur Rubinstein. The sculptor Israel Hadany designed the memorial in the form of a piano keyboard bursting into the impressive scenery of the Jerusalem Mountains. The “piano” is made of marble and next to it there is a modest monument with Arthur Rubinstein’s name, noting the dates of his birth and death. In 1969 KKL-JNF planted a plot in Aminadav Forest in honor of Arthur Rubinstein. The forest was planted with help of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra and the Friends of the Orchestra, and Arthur Rubinstein himself was present at the moving ceremony.
Directions: Arrive at Yad Kennedy, some 500 m west of the access road to Aminadav (Route 3877). The parking lot is 100 m down the road from the turning to Yad Kennedy.
