Our esteemed vocal band “Shiluvim Koliym” was invited to the 16th Gangneung International Junior Art Festival in South Korea. Before they departed, they stole the show and the hearts of the audience at our annual summer concert here at Neve Yosef, on July 4th, and again while performing their set for South Korea on July 23rd. Shortly after, the young women and their coaching staff arrived in South Korea, where they were widely accepted and welcomed. Our delegation had the opportunity to experience traditional South Korean culture, where they explored the city and were invited to a tea ceremony. During the opening ceremony and parade, “Shiluvim” proudly represented themselves and the country of Israel. Once again, “Shiluvim” left the audience in awe. In fact, it was the first time in sixteen years that a group was asked to come back for an encore. Additionally, they were asked to be the main act in the festival’s closing show with the attendance of the city mayor.
