Visiting Israeli group performing in Teaneck

35-2-ukelele-A))Image-8Ukuleles for Peace in Israel will give a special performance at the Jewish Center of Teaneck on Tuesday, July 28, at 8 p.m.

The non-profit musical group is composed of Jewish and Arab teens that play in an orchestra with ukuleles, kazoos, and other fun instruments. The children sing in Hebrew, Arabic, and English.

Paul Moore, the group’s founder, works with students once a week in their schools and unites them for performances. The hope is that playing together will create opportunities for communal activities, and parents and members of the communities will get involved in the program.

The group has been in the United States for three weeks performing in Rhode Island, Maine, the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., New York City, and Hawaii. The performance at the JCT is their last stop.

A $15 voluntary contribution is requested to enable more children to participate in the group and to help buy ukuleles for those who cannot afford to buy one.
