Festival Bet Shemesh

It is with great pleasure that I can notify all list users that all activities planned for Sukkot as part of the Festival Bet Shemesh can be seen at

The full program is ready in Hebrew and the main events in English.

The entire English program will be completed in a day or two.

Brochures (in Hebrew) will be distributed/delivered before Chag.

For the first time ever (for a small fee) your friends and family from abroad will be able to watch the Festival thanks to Donny Wetzler of Video Eden.

So tell your friends and family that they too, can be part of the Bet Shemesh Festival. It will be filmed live and they can watch via the Internet - same site as above.

I take this opportunity to thank Jonty Zwebner for arranging two great evenings of Jewish Music with 16 of the top bands and Orly Luk for arranging three days of various tiyulim and activities suitable for all.

I would also like to thank all the City's partners, the Ministries of Tourism and Culture, Partnership 2000, Mifal Hapayis, Matnas, Moazah Datit, Midreshet Bet Shemesh, Jerusalem Post, Yoav-Yehuda Tourism Board, Y-net Yahadut, Keren Kayemet, and Rochvei Shimshon, who together with many volunteers and municipal workers worked hard to make this year's Festival bigger and better than before.

Chag Sameach!
