For the 12th year in a row, the Ahava Festival at the Dead Sea will take place over Hol Hamoed, from April 20-25. This year's festival focuses on the dire state of the Dead Sea and what we must do to save it from drying up entirely. However, most people will continue to be drawn by the live music concerts at beaches and sites around the Dead Sea. Many of Israel's leading artists will perform, including Ahinoam Nini, Evyatar Banai, Mashina and Ehud Banai, Arkadi Duchin, Mosh Ben Ari and more. During daylight hours, the festival is offering tours and activities around the Dead Sea. Visit www.dead-sea.org.il for more information or call (02)-622-2333
