Yael Deckelbaum & Prayer of the Mothers is a new boundary-breaking Israeli, multi-cultural women’s ensemble, inspired by the international Women Wage Peace movement. Yael, founding member of the legendary trio Habanot Nechama, is an award-winning Israeli/Canadian singer-songwriter and activist in the mold of Joan Baez.
Yael’s song “Prayer of the Mothers” became the anthem of the March of Hope, a group of 4,000 Palestinian and Israeli women who marched through the desert in a call for peace. A music video of this historic moment went viral with over 4 million views, and now you can see them perform “Prayer of the Mothers” and more live.
