Singer’s Festival is a Festival of Jewish Culture, which takes place in Warsaw since 2004. The organizer is Shalom Foundation, which was established in 1988 thanks to the initiative of actress and director – Gołdy Tencer.
During the festival we can listen to Jewish music and see Jewish theater performances, films, shows and exhibitions. In addition to artistic events, you can also try Jewish food and take part in kosher cooking workshops, dance, songs, cutouts, ceramics and calligraphy. In addition, numerous lectures and discussion groups devoted to Jewish culture are organized.
This year the Singer’s Warsaw Festival runs from 25th August to 3rd September.
The inaugural concert will be inaugurated at the Synagogue Nożyków, where the musicians will perform with the project “Ahava Raba” – an emotional interpretation of the prayer and blessing recited by Judaism followers during the Shakhtarı – Jewish morning religious rites.
