This Monday (8 p.m.) the Reading 3 venue in Tel Aviv Port will host a fundraiser show in aid of 27-year-old Yishai Berg, who is waiting to have a second kidney transplant operation.

Petah Tikva resident Berg first suffered from a kidney disorder at the age of 17, which prevented him from doing normal IDF service along with his classmates. Even so, he eventually served in the IDF Oketz Canine Unit.

However, several years later Berg’s condition deteriorated and he underwent a transplant operation when he received one of his mother’s kidneys.

Unfortunately, his body later rejected the kidney and he now has to undergo dialysis treatment three times a week until he is able to have a second kidney transplant operation abroad. For this to happen, Berg needs to raise $150,000 and it is hoped Monday’s show will go some way to making that possible.

The stars that have agreed to volunteer their services include veteran rocker Danny Sanderson, hip hop outfit Hadag Nahash, veteran Yemenite singer Ahuva Ozeri, young Mediterranean music-style crooner Idan Yaniv and singer-songwriter Ohad Hitman.

Tickets are priced NIS 180 – NIS 600. For tickets and more information: (054) 666-6436 or *3447
