Layl Shira: An Evening of Israeli Song
Thursday, April 23, 7:00pm

Celebrate Yom Ha'atzmaut with an evening of Israeli song! Shira betzibur (singing in public) was a favorite activity of the pioneers of Israel, who would pass out song sheets, take out a lone guitar or accordion, and sing around the campfire. We’re bringing back this fun tradition with a dynamic repertoire of familiar and new songs. Words are projected on a large screen and are easy to follow. Come and sing or just enjoy the music!
