Nicole and I have been big fans of the Moshav band going back to the late '90s. We couldn't pass up the opportunity of seeing them play last night in Jerusalem with the Solomon Brothers. In fact most members of both bands come from the same Solomon family that includes seven boys who are all incredibly talented. There is a deep connection between the band and Tsfat. The boys grew up on Moshav Mevo Modiin founded by Shlomo Carlebach. There seems to be this mystical revolving door between Tsfat and the Moshav with many residents having lived in both places. Below is a compilation from the concert. The sweetest part of the concert was near the end when Yehuda asked two of his young nephews to join on stage.
Are you looking for something different to do for your Bar/Bat Mitzvah celebration in Israel? Look no further than Tsfat. Meir Glaser from Path Of The Heart will take care of all of the details and create for you an meaningful event that you will remember forever.
This may not be Emerald City, but there’s magic in the Gilboa Mountains. Imagine watching colorful hot air balloons take off at sunrise and float across blue skies above the Jezreel Valleys’ verdant green fields. Looking up, Mount Gilboa soars, creating a spectacular backdrop.
Tens of thousands will gather for the annual International Hot Air Balloon Festival from August 2nd to 3rd, 2018. The festival will be held in Ma’ayan Harod Park which is located in the lower Galilee. The park is a beautiful one-hour drive from Villa Tiferet in Tsfat.
Balloonists will come from all over the world with their exciting playful, colorful balloons that delight adults and children alike. In previous years, the festival has attracted participants from the US, Belgium, Germany, Austria and the Netherlands.
Try to be a part of this unique and exciting aviation show. Performances include a balloon flyover, skydiving, paragliding and hair-raising high altitude acrobatics.
At night, enjoy fireworks, a balloon night glow show, concerts and food stands. Many attendees enjoy camping at the park so they can be there for the whole event.
We may be far from Emerald City, but who knows…maybe this year the Wizard of Oz will fly by! For more information, contact the Gilboa Regional Council website.
