 THE ANNUAL European Jewish Choral Festival that was inaugurated in London in 2012 brings together the best Jewish choirs from all over Europe and Israel. This year, the festival was held in St. Petersburg with the participation of 28 choristers from Jerusalem’s Ramatayim Men’s Choir directed by Richard Shavei-Tzion and accompanied on the piano by Aviva Stanislawski.

The choir, which is now back in Jerusalem, performed before thousands of concertgoers. Some of the highlights included: appearances at the magnificent State Capella Music House and the renowned Mariinsky concert hall to sell-out audiences; leading Shabbat services and a Sunday concert at a packed Great Choral Synagogue; leading a Friday night Carlebach minyan with the participation of hundreds of European choristers. The choir also collaborated with London tenor Robert Brody, whose brother Michael is a Ramatayim chorister.
