On February 23, Shlomo Katz will take center stage at Beit Shmuel for a concert benefiting Bayit L’Chayalot (the home for female lone soldiers) in Jerusalem. When the singer/ songwriter scans the crowd with many lone soldiers, his eyes will be searching for one in particular – his father.

In 1962, Avshalom Katz traveled from his childhood home in Buenos Aires to Yemin Orde, a youth village near Haifa.
