Tarbut: Festival of Jewish Culture featuring Yael Deckelbaum

Yael Deckelbaum is an award-winning Israeli/ Canadian singer-songwriter and activist. She is a founding member of the legendary trio Habanot Nechama, whose single So Far sold over 50,000 copies and became a #1 hit in Israel.

The song Prayer of the Mothers, which has over 4 million views on You Tube, was born as a result of an alliance made between Yael Deckelbaum and a group of courageous women, leading the movement of “Women Wage Peace”. On October 4, 2016, Jewish and Arab women began the “March of Hope” project, a call that reached its peak on October 19th, in a march of at least 4,000 women – half of them Palestinian, half Israeli, in a joint prayer for peace.
