NOLA Stands With Israel at Music Over Sirens
In times of war, art heals. For more than three weeks, thousands of rockets have rained across Israel. When the sirens sound, most have only 15 seconds to seek shelter—and while we can’t stop the sirens, we can certainly provide the tools to help those impacted by them find relief.
On Tuesday, July 29, New Orleans will come together at a benefit concert to support Israel, and to provide humanitarian assistance for those in the path of the rocket fire at “Music Over Sirens: NOLA Stands With Israel.” Held at The Howlin’ Wolf (907 S. Peters Street, New Orleans) at 8:00 p.m., this night of music will feature New Orleans artists Khari Lee and Michael Pellera, as well as Israeli musicians Itamar Borochov and Jonathan Greenstein.
Attendees are asked for a suggested donation of $10, which will directly benefit the Jewish Federations of North America’s Stop the Sirens emergency campaign as well as providing relief for Kibbutz Kfar Gaza, a community in southern Israel which is repeatedly barraged by fire from Hamas.
Stop the Sirens is a collaboration of a wide network of Jewish social service organizations, which is providing respite breaks for children in the line of fire, trauma support, and direct infrastructure and emergency support to 13 communities hit hardest by the conflict.
In strife, art mends us. Help us stop the sirens at Music Over Sirens.
The Lemann-Stern Leadership Development Program was begun in 1960 for the purpose of training outstanding young men and women in the Greater New Orleans Jewish community for positions of leadership. Participants in the program are selected from self-nominations or nominations made by past Lemann-Stern participants and community leaders. The program is two years in length and includes a mission to Israel, monthly meetings and a retreat.
2014 marks the 54th (triple chai) anniversary of leadership development programming in Greater New Orleans. Graduates of the program have served on the boards of every Jewish agency, synagogue and organization in our community, and have used the knowledge gained from the program to benefit the wider New Orleans community as well. The Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans invites you to join us in our efforts to endow the program through the Leadership Development Endowment Campaign. Our goal—with your help—is to raise $1.5 million to:
• Expand the current 8 day mission to a 9 day mission, allowing program participants an additional day on the ground in Israel
• Cover the cost of an overnight retreat – which includes intensive leadership training – at no cost to program participants
• Create subsidies for Jewish Federations of North America Young Leadership or Young
Adult conference attendees
• Fund programming and the cost of a leadership development facilitator
Chaired by Kathy Shepard and Jonny Lake, the Leadership Development Endowment Campaign offers a special opportunity to those impacted by Lemann-Stern. There is no minimum gift. Interested in learning more? Click here.Click here to make a gift to the Leadership Development Endowment Campaign.
