One of the highlights of the year in New York is the much anticipated Israel Day Parade and Concert. It is a day to openly show our pride for the miraculous Jewish State which continues to thrive despite all odds. Many bands are featured in the parade part, including this year Soul Farm, but it is the concert that is a real celebration of Jewish music. I also am writing about upcoming shows with rav Raz Hartman from Israel, a very gifted singer/songwriter. Here are the details, as well as info about other upcoming shows:
