Israeli Touring Band Shufuni to perform in the South Hills

Temple Emanuel of South Hills, 1250 Bower Hill Road

August 1, 2024

7-9 pm

The South Hills and Greater Pittsburgh community is invited to a special concert by the Israeli-touring band, Shufuni, on Thursday, August 1, 2024, 7-9 pm, at Temple Emanuel of South Hills, 1250 Bower Hill Road.

This first-of-a-kind tour through North America, open to everyone, is in partnership with Moving to Our Center (MTOC), and the JCC Association of North America (JCCA).

The concert will be a unique and moving experience as Shufuni’s four traveling band members express through music and stories how the events of October 7 and the days following have altered their lives and in many ways, their identities.

Shufuni was established in 2022 to promote young artists coming from Sderot, an area renowned for its music scene, to share the unique voice of Israel’s southern communities. Current members include folk singer/songwriter Daniel Waiss, soul-folk singer Linor Ein Gedi, guitarist, drummer and music educator Rotem Meir Levi, and performer Mira Semandoyev, who recently appeared in the finals of the Israeli Idol show, Hakochav Haba.

On October 7, 2023, Shufuni lost members of the band as well as their audience who were murdered during the horrific attack by Hamas. Four band members will be performing and speaking at the August 1 concert.

The concert and opportunity for Q&A with the band is recommended for ages 16+.

Backpacks are not allowed into the facility.
Performance is free of charge but registration is required.
