This year's Passover concert coincides with the 50th anniversary of Hebron's liberation
The annual Passover music festival usually brings about 30,000 people to Hebron each year. Last year's festival kicked off the jubilee season early and this year's festival is sure to be an even more meaningful event as we mark the 50th anniversary of the liberation of Hebron during the Six Day War.
The Isaac & Rebecca Hall will be open for two days during the Passover week, Wednesday April 12 and Thursday April 13. This hall is the largest in the Tomb of Machpela complex and houses the memorial markers of the graves of the Biblical Patriarch Isaac and his wife the Matriarch Rebecca. It is only open 10 days out of the year for Jewish access.
The mega concert will feature local and international musicians and family friendly activities. Past performers have included Mordechai Ben David, Lipa Schmeltzer, Haim Israel, Udi Davidi, Bini Landau, Sinai Tor, Aaron Razel and more.
