The concert entitled The Heart and the Fountain adapts a poem by the Ukrainian poet Hayim Nahman Bialik. The poem tells a metaphysical story about the functioning of the world based on the principle of time. To this text, Ofer Ben-Amots, an Israeli-American composer, composed the piece The Heart and the Fountain, which is used as the main musical idea of ​​the concert. It provides space for reflection and finding distance from the accelerated society and realizing the values ​​of life, of which the most important one we have is time. The concert also celebrates the beauty of Jewish culture, which has gone through more than one difficult test throughout human history. The author of the songs you will hear is again Ofer Ben-Amots.

7 songs like a seven-branched menorah candelabrum that burns with eternal light.
9 performers as a nine-branch candelabrum, a symbol of Hanukkah, the Festival of Lights.
