Our Story

Grandmother Muma

מומה הוא הכינוי המשפחתי של לאה אבושדיד, אשתו של איתמר בן אב"י, בנו של מחיה השפה העברית – אליעזר בן יהודה. מומה גם היתה הסבתא שלנו...מומה הייתה אישה מהאגדות. חכמה ושנונה. וכן, מומה גם ידעה לבשל מצוין. למעשה היא היתה הבשלנית של המשפחה וחלק ממתכוניה משולבים גם בתפריט. על מומה וסיפור אהבתה הנועז עם איתמר סופר גם בשיר "אהבת איתמר" וכן גם בספריו של גיל חובב, אח שלנו והנכד של מומה.  

Muma was the family nickname of Leah Abushdid (born in 1896), wife of Itamar Ben-Avi, the son of Eliezer Ben Yehuda –  known as the Hebrew revival.  Muma was also our beloved grandmother… A unique and influencing woman...and yes, she was a great cook! 

A cowshed Turns into a Restaurant

Muma is based in the historic cowshed of Kibutz Kiryat Anavim. A preservation building originally built in 1921. Most of it was preserved as original including the "Star of David" keystone above the entrance door.

Design

Muma was built from scratch and entirely designed by us. We created the hand crafted pieces, collected old family's furniture and renewed original elements from the cowshed. Our kitchen, design and concept was Inspired by the historical building, family and Muma's story and the pastoral area, which in our vision were all mixed in harmony into a magical rural house with nostalgic vibes.  

 

Muma's interior includes varied seating styles including wide tables for groups, cozy private bar seats, living room with firewood and the main bar where vibes go more trendy at late evenings. 

Our outdoor open air seating is the place to catch Jerusalem's famous air and pastoral green nature view

Muma's Workshop

Muma's Workshop is our restaurant boutique where we collect creations we like from artists and designers / create our own items.

Vintage pieces, fernitures, books, wines, books, photos and art. 

 

Music and Live shows

Like our cousin, interior design and styling, we found music to be telling our story and vision. Our soundtrack is a mix of our own record collection from all over the world which we collected for years and edited especially for Muma. Follow us on Soundcloud for master-peices from the soundtrack

From Jazz to Flamenco, Muma hosts talented musicians and band for live show. 

Live show event happens 1-3 times a month.
