Dear friends and music lovers, we need your help! Our Foundation relies on subsidies, sponsorships and donations to organize our concerts. So please support us. Even a €10 donation can make a big difference. On behalf of the Board, I thank you very much, Micha Cohen, Chairman.



Join us for the 8th Annual Chanukah Concert in the Main Hall of the Royal Concertgebouw with Cantor Israel Nachman and the Jewish Amsterdam Chamber Ensemble.

We are also proud to announce a solo performance by Grammy Award winners: Igor Gruppman, Concertmaster Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra and Vesna Stefanovich-Gruppman, both violin.

The upcoming 75th Anniversary of the State of Israel will play a central role at this concert.
