The 23rd annual Israel Day Concert in Central Park was cancelled

The 23rd annual Israel Day Concert in Central Park was cancelled due to looming threats of thunder & lightning, to protect the public. Concert Organizer, Dr. Joe Frager (2nd from left) and Concert Chairman, Dr. Paul Brody (holding flag of Yerushalayim) – together with media coordinator Odeleya Jacobs (not shown), who arranged with Rabbi Dr. Eli Abadie to utilize the Saffra Synagogue – quickly reacted by transforming those ominous sounds to sounds of hope and unity for Jerusalem and Israel, keeping the messages of the Concert alive. On short notice, Israeli singing star Tal Vaknin (holding Israeli flag) coordinated with Israeli pianist extraordinaire Shlomi Aharoni (behind him), and Israeli star Mati Shriki (holding guitar), delivering beautifully synchronized renditions of “Yerushalayim Shel Zahav,” “Vhi SheAmda” and “Oseh Shalom Bimromav,” on Yom Yerushalayim. They were joined by guitarist “Mr. Shabbos,” Josh Alpert (2nd from right) and his band White Shabbos, consisting of drummer Pesach Alpert (far left), bassist Mordechai Harrison (back row) and Noam Segal (far right) on mandolin. Avi Kilimnick (not shown), a rising singing star from Rochester, provided the high notes. Photo credit: Uzi Productions
