קרדיט צילום: נועם אמיר

As the world moves towards the shortest day of the year and the beginning of winter, various cultures and traditions mark festivals that celebrate the smallest flame of the candle. At this time, with our region torn by conflict, the Great Gehenna Choir will hold a Hanukkah candle-lighting ceremony that focuses on the minute yet precise touch of the candle’s light. Through singing, they will try to remind us that there may be a world of love and healing, and that the power of prayer is a real, supporting, and enduring force.

The Great Gehenna Choir is founded and supported by Mamuta Art & Research Center
