Israel’s David Broza headlines Hartford Celebrates Israel at 65

Israel’s multi-platinum superstar David Broza – often referred to as the Jewish state’s Bruce Springsteen — will perform in concert in the Mandell Jewish Community

david brozaCenter on Sunday, April 28, at 7:30 p.m.  Broza’s performance will be the culmination of “Hartford Celebrates Israel at 65” – a day-long festival of family fun that will begin at 10 a.m.

An accomplished guitarist, Broza’s music fuses the three different countries in which he was raised: Israel, Spain, and England. Beginning in 1977, Broza has been working to bring the message of peace to the masses by joining peace movements, and singing what has become the anthem of the Peace process, his hit song “Yihye Tov.”

Tickets for the concert and dessert reception are $25 per person. Tickets may be purchased by phone, (860) 231-6316; by email, tickets@mandelljcc.org; or at the JCC, 335 Bloomfield Ave. in West Hartford.

Hartford Celebrates Israel at 65 will also be highlighted by an Israeli Shuk (market) that will be open from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., featuring for sale an array of gifts, jewelry and other products from Israel, and a Family Festival featuring food from Israel (for sale) and activities, such as climbing the fortress of Masada, exploring the Negev desert and the Red Sea, and an indoor gaga pit. From 4 – 5 p.m., the community will come together for Walk the Land, a family walk for Israel around the JCC campus. The Family Festival is free and open to all.
