The Bayit Balev center in Metula will be opening its winter season next week with a heart-warming evening of musical performances. The center operates year-round, providing classes in a variety of subjects as well as various workshops on Jewish spirituality. The third annual Winter Festival, scheduled for next Tuesday, will play host to a variety of genre-bending performances, including Ensemble Ruah Kadim, Yoav Halkin's Orbitolei Hashefa, and Sifoluks, a progressive trance act that promises to be fizzy and uplifting. "At the open house we hold cultural and Jewish-related events throughout the year for residents of Metula and the area, as well as the students of the nearby Tel Hai Academic College," said the center's program director Maayan Leshem, himself a student at Tel Hai. "This festival is very diverse; there's going to be ethnic music, Jewish music, reggae and funk." Leshem said that the main purpose of the evening was to draw attention to the Bayit and allow a larger group of people to benefit from the unique activities it offers. The Winter Festival taks place Tuesday November 10 at 7 p.m. at Rehov Rishonim 39, Metula. For tickets call (050) 686-4439
