“This event highlights Israel’s young, vibrant culture – filled with excitement and desire for a better, stable future,” OR Movement’s US Director and Executive Producer for the event, Shai Baitel, said in a press release.

“This night will be filled with stars of Broadway and stars of David.”

“Throughout my career, I have been most fortunate to portray strong Jewish women, steeped in their faith and values. May this night sing to its audience about the love of the arts and the love of a country, called Israel,” Feldshuh said.

“A concert as varied and star-studded as this is a wonderful way to show Israel’s contributions to the world, its energy, vision and talents,” Ronald Lauder, chairman of the board of Jewish National Fund, said in a statement.
