Event Details

Since biblical times, the arts have been a means of expressing joy and sorrow, and they remain integral to Israeli culture and community. Join us for a showcase featuring dancers and musicians from our partner region in Israel, Ramat HaNegev.

The Holit Ramat HaNegev Dance Troupe will present five short pieces choreographed and performed by young dancers from the Ramat HaNegev Dance Studio. The Shargi Ensemble, made up of Jewish and Bedouin musicians and led by Ramat HaNegev native David (Dudi) Itzhaki, will play a set of original songs composed by Itzhaki.

The pre-recorded performances will be followed by a live discussion with the artists, moderated by our Ramat HaNegev partnership coordinator Jared White.
