 No fewer than three consecutive cultural evenings were scheduled for this past Hol Hamoed at the Sultan’s Pool, for residents and visitors to celebrate. Three nights of music and song – with not even one woman performer on the stage.

The event was produced and financed by the Ariel Municipal Company, which means this was not a typical private production and that there is less possibility to express any criticism.
