Talk about a dream come true: A series of jam sessions among friends grows into a full-blown music venue, complete with financial backing, aimed at building a community among the area’s young people who share a desire to participate in music and art.

“We were a bunch of friends who got together to play music in our spare time,” says Koby Davider, 30, a member of the Dror- Israel Movement. For the past seven years he has lived in Acre, in an “Educators’ Kibbutz,” one of the movement’s many urban kibbutzim scattered around Israel.
