The Jewish Arts Collaborative presents a very special Israel Independence Day concert of songs of peace by popular Israeli singer Yael Deckelbaum & The Mothers, a multi-ethnic band of Israeli women, with special guest Shelley Thomas, Grammy-winning singer from Yo Yo Ma’s Silk Road Project.
This project was inspired by Deckelbaum’s involvement in Women Wage Peace, a broad, politically unaffiliated movement, which brings together women from across the religious/secular divide, the left/right split and the Jewish/Arab barrier to advocate for a non-violent, respectful and mutually accepted solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The Boston Children’s Chorus will make a special appearance at the concert.
Tickets for a pre-concert reception to thank Israeli Consul General Yehuda Yaakov for his ongoing support for the arts with premium concert seats are available for $125.
Immediately following the performance, Israeli Consul General Yehuda Yaakov will be joining Yael for a discussion on the role of the arts in optimism in Israel.
This event is made possible by the generous support of the Michael B. Rukin Charitable Foundation.+ More... - Less...
