• Kobi Tour Guide of Israel

Fantastic Online Concerts/Shows/Films from Israel!

Updated: Nov 17

There a ton of music and film festivals happening right now in Israel - as well as new Jewish documentaries available online as well. Here is a list of some of the highlights for you from your Israel tour guide!


The Oud Festival - November 19-28

The oud is Middle Eastern string instrument and Jerusalem has held an international festival celebrating it for two decades. Due to COVID-19 it will not be happening in person. While this means that only local performers will be highlighted (as international performers can't come), due to it being free and online they hope to reach a much wider audience. The singing will be in Hebrew, Arabic and Ladino. For more check out the link below and this clip...

The Jerusalem Jewish Film Festival is still going on through November 22. One hit is "Resistance," about the story of the famous mime Marcel Marceau and his role in the resistance in WWII helping Jewish children flee to Switzerland. It stars noted actor Jesse Eisenberg and is still available through November 18. An interview with Eisenberg can be found here (and you can watch the trailer below): https://www.jpost.com/israel-news/culture/resistance-for-jesse-eisenberg-its-salvation-not-revenge-648977
