It's been a grueling few weeks for the young Jews from around the world taking part in the Hallelujah global Jewish singing contest.
Last Thursday the second semi final took place in Migdal Haemek and the judges announced who would be moving on to the final. The judges were so impressed with the talent this year that they decided to put 14 singers through instead of the planned 12.
The final will take place at Ramat HaSharon's Tennis stadium on Saturday evening. JPost.com will be broadcasting the show live from 8:45 p.m.
