Israeli cellist to perform, present case for giving at Presidents Dinner
In addition to hearing from Fauda co-creator and lead actor Lior Raz at the Jewish Federation Presidents Dinner on June 3, guests will also listen to music performed by New York-based Israeli cellist Elad Kabilio.
The music director of Ballet Next in New York since 2011, Kabilio teaches at Manhattan School of Music and is a founding member of the Israeli 12th Night Klezmer ensemble. He was a member of the Israeli Defense Forces String Quartet and has received America-Israel Cultural Foundation scholarships for a decade. Kabilio is also the founder of MusicTalks, a chamber music and conversation series.
“Elad will play several vignettes for us throughout the evening and will share his story about how Federations help support the arts in Israel, and what that has meant for him,” said Juliet Glaser, Jewish Federation’s campaign director.
Guests at the Presidents Dinner will have the opportunity to make their pledges to the Jewish Federation’s 2018 Annual Campaign, which provides funding for Jewish agencies locally, in Israel, and around the world.
