The Charles Bronfman Auditorium – aka Heichal Hatarbut – in Tel Aviv will resound to all kinds of upbeat sounds and textures produced by a stellar pop and rock lineup, on November 30 (8 p.m.). The A-lister bill features the likes of Aviv Geffen, Arcadi Duchin, Dikla, Mosh Ben-Ari and Hayehudim, and all in a good cause.
The show is a fundraiser for the Beit Hashanti organization which provides at-risk youth with a roof over their head, good square meals and the warmth and emotional support of a homey environment.
Beit Hashanti was founded 32 years ago by Maryuma Ben-Yossef, who proudly notes that to date the organization has helped over 42,000 youth, who completed their education, served in the IDF and achieved a normative lifestyle. The centers provide round-the-clock services 365 days a year.
The concert is supported by the Zappa Club and the Municipality of Tel Aviv, and Ben-Yossef and her colleagues hope the event will go a long way to making up the shortfall in significant budget the organization has to find annually. Just 22 percent of Beit Hashanti’s outgoings are covered by the Social Affairs and Social Services Ministry, with the remainder generated through donations, and through an annual charity bike ride from Tel Aviv to the other Beit Hashanti home, in the Negev. This year 1,500 riders helped to raise over NIS 500,000, but more is urgently needed. All the musicians are volunteering their services for the charity concert.
