About

Help bring Shirat Machar to your community!

We are asking for your help to support a Summer 2013 tour for Shirat Machar, a group of young, talented, Israeli singers and performers, all with extensive experience as youth leaders within the Noam Youth Group of the Masorti Movement.  They have been highly selected for both their talent and for their leadership skills that they have demonstrated over the years. 

Representing the length and breadth of the Land of Israel, Shirat Machar is preparing to bring their leadership and musical skills to America and Argentina this Summer. They are working hard preparing performances and programming to provide educational seminars and programs for youth aged 5 to 14. These “mifgashim” (gatherings) with peers their age in their host communities, inspirational prayer services and enrichment in tefilot, ceremonies for Yom Haatzmaut, Yom Hazikaron and other Israeli national holidays, represent a unique opportunity to inspire, entertain, and educate individuals groups and communities of all ages and backgrounds. Shirat Machar offers a wide range of programs, to tailor the experience to a specific community’s needs and expectations. Most programs will include the following:

Full performances of Israeli and Jewish music, as well as songs composed and performed by the singing troupe. The voices and arrangements are all performed live providing an experience unlike most other touring groups and "caravans".

Educational programs and activities relating to upcoming holidays, Israel and Zionist values and Masorti/Conservative Judaism.

Seminars geared towards Israeli national holidays, such as Yom Haatzmut or Yom Hashoah.

Special programs for youth aged 5-14, designed to work in Jewish camps, Sunday School or Jewish Day School environments.

Shabbatonim: Shirat Machar can provide an Israeli touch to an entire Shabbat by enhancing tefilot with song, followed by fun and educational programs, all supervised by our experienced madrichim.

Mifgashim between Israeli and American youth in the same age group (16-18). This stimulates vibrant and interactive discussion as American and Israeli teens share their life experiences, and backgrounds with one another. This can be terrific for age-appropriate communities and groups like USY.

Enhanced tefilot. Shirat Machar can either lead the entire service, or simply add to a community's current traditions through additional songs or melodies. Most of Shirat Machar's repertoire are familiar melodies and arrangements, with some original compositions offered to provide a new perspective for those groups interested in exploring their horizons.

Shirat Machar can entertain or work with groups and communities of all ages. They are confident, mature and experienced individuals who have been chosen as leaders of their communities and their peers.

These kids can sing!

Risks and challenges

Planning is already in full swing for this Summer's tour. All of the performers have their papers in order and the people in charge of the Shirat Machar project are very well organized. We foresee no problem in fulfilling the project's goals.

Since one of the rewards offered includes a performance of the group at the location of choice of the donor, we have not yet specified a tour schedule. This will be finalized once the Kickstarter project has been completed.

The other rewards like CD, stickers, photo's, etc... will all be ready well before the August tour begins. The CD is sounding GREAT!
