Koolulam - Hai - Ofra Haza - Holocaust Remembrance Day March 21, 2018

Koolulam, a self-proclaimed “social-musical initiative” based in Tel Aviv, partnered with Zikaron Basalon, another “social initiative,” to honor Shoah survivors and generally promote the sanctity of human life with a performance of the song “Chai” by Avraham Toledano and Uri Kariv at Beit Avi-Chai in Jerusalem. Chai is the Hebrew word for “life.”

Nearly 600 Holocaust survivors attended the event, along with their families, children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. The event proceeded the annual Holocaust Remembrance Day commemeration in 2018.
