Friday Night Live: Celebrating Israel At 75
Temple Emanu-El and Temple Israel of New York proudly welcome Achinoam “Noa” Nini and Gil Dor to pay musical tribute to the creation of the state of Israel, to the country’s countless accomplishments and to the challenges it faces at a fraught moment of division over what the country can and should be.
With roots in Yemen, Israel and the US, Noa is a singer, songwriter, poet and percussionist who has represented Israel at Eurovision, performed at Carnegie Hall, the White House, the Vatican and shared the stage with the world’s greatest performers, including Stevie Wonder, Andrea Bocelli and Sting. Gil Dor, her musical partner, is the co-founder of the Rimon School of Music. They have released fifteen albums.
In addition to her prolific musical activity, Noa is considered Israel’s most prominent cultural advocate of dialogue and co-existence, her “Voice of Peace”.
