On April 24th, Ballet Magnificat! concluded their twelve-day tour across Israel with a grand finale at Helping Hand Coalition’s Caesarea headquarters. The event was attended by international guests and twenty survivors of the Holocaust from Beit Ham in Or Akiva, led by Sofia. It was a truly remarkable Shalom House that touched the hearts of all attendees and paid tribute to those no longer with us ahead of Israel’s Remembrance Day (Yom HaZikaron).
Ballet Magnificat! Comes to Israel
During the week of memorial and preparation leading up to Israel’s Holocaust Remembrance Day (April 18th) and Independence Day (April 26th), an American ballet company called Ballet Magnificat! arrived in Israel with fourteen professional dancers to perform “The Hiding Place,” a story of “hope in the midst of suffering.”
