The Hallelujah Global Jewish Singing Contest is not about winning, says Chairman of the Council Tzahi Gavrieli. It's about "connecting to your peers in your program, connecting to Hebrew, connecting to Israel, and connecting to your Jewish roots.”

Jews from around the world have come together for a few weeks in Israel for an enriching program where they will receive musical and vocal training, rehearse their songs in Hebrew, travel the country, and meet other young people who share their passion for music and Jewish culture.

Hallelujah started in 1992, but only ran for two years. Now, 20 years later, the singing contest is running for the second year since its successful comeback in 2011.

Fourteen out of 30 participants made it to the finals, which will take place on Saturday, August 18, where one Jewish star will take their passion to the next level.
