Over these three days, Tefen will feature two Israelis Orchestras, the Sinfonietta Beer Sheva and the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra. Come listen to chamber concerts and symphonies in this beautiful outdoor setting.
Similar to Tzfat’s master classes, which are still ongoing, this festival also features classes for young musicians and a chance for them to perform in symphonic programs. Jewish, Arab and Armenian musicians will learn and perform together in the festival.
And while you are there, enjoy all that Tefen has to offer….
Be sure to check out the vintage car museum with a special collection of forty cars dating from the early 20th century. This rare collection is owned by industrialist Eitan Wertheimer and is a one-of-a-kind in Israel and one of the largest in the world. All of these cars were once driven in Israel and were picked up from scrap yards and painstakingly restored.
In addition to the car museum, Tefen also offers a Heritage Museum that tells the story of German-speaking Jewry until World War II. It also features displays on the contribution of German Jews who made aliyah to Israel. In total, the museum showcases artifacts on architecture, art, industry, law and medicine in interactive presentations and photography as well as some 5,000 German books.
