How could I forget?
With a post last week of musical events in Jerusalem, Israel,
I forgot to include the annual Piano Festival
taking place once again at the Jerusalem Theater.
In the ‘what will they do to top last year’ department,
chairs were set up outside in a large tent.
Piano performances will be held over three days,
and piano bars stocked with wines
will help keep visitors warm in the cold nights.
inside the theater,
musicians and singers who immigrated to Israel
performed throughout the building.
Some were more interested in the snacks
than the music or art works on display.
With the holidays approaching, visitors are arriving
and decorations are lining the streets.
Chanukkah celebration signs are posted.
Festivals, performances and happenings
will light up the city for Hanuka,
too many events to list.
The lights of Shabbat
will be followed by the lights of Hanuka.
Yes, I spelled חנוכה different ways in English,
but the wishes are the same.
And if you want more lights and music
to get in a holiday mood,
here is my favorite video from last year.
