On 26 August 2012, a concert of Jewish soul music was held at Yad Vashem's Monument to the Jewish Soldiers and Partisans who fought against Nazi Germany. "Mashiv Haruach" From Safed to Jerusalem - A Concert of Jewish Soul Music - was held in the presence of hundreds of Holocaust survivors, next generations and friends of Yad Vashem from Israel and abroad. The monument made a perfect and imposing setting - the music soaring out across the Jerusalem hills. The music was a living memorial to the Jewish world destroyed during the Shoah, and the celebration of Jewish life that continues.
Among those performing at the concert were Maestro Giora Feidman (clarinet), Maestro Raul Jaurena (bandoneon), Maestro Corrado Giuffredi (clarinet), Emil Aybinder (accordion), Prof. Ilan Schul (clarinet), Prof. Gersh Geller (saxophone), Hanan Bar Sela (clarinet), Constantin Moscovici (pan-flute), Pazit Gal (piano), Shmuel (Mula) Sayevitch (piano), Manny Katz (bass), Michel Guerchovitch-Gershwin (violin) and Enrique Ugarte (accordion).
The MC. was Benny Hendel.
The concert was held with the support of the Ministry of Education and under the auspices of the Safed Klezmer Masterclass Association.
