The Moetzet – The Council of Jewish Singing hosting the Gat Brothers

Moetzet HaShira HaYehudit – The Council of Jewish Singing is a new theatrical project consisting of musical medleys that encompass and sum up an era of hassidic-Jewish music: 1960-1990.

The artist behind the initiative is Yishai Lapidot, moved by a desire to return to the sources of hassidic music in which melody and words take center stage.

The show – which hosts the Gat Brothers, Aryeh and Gil, who won the hearts of the Israeli public on the Next Israeli Star television program – is a kind of “tish” in which the singers perform the aforementioned medleys with audience participation.

During the show, nostalgic Jewish favorites are interwoven with the outstanding singing of the Gat Brothers, hassidic classics and Israeli songs that have become part and parcel of Jewish culture. The charismatic and remarkably diverse group of performers, and the powerful energy that they generate on stage, make this show an unforgettable cultural experience.

On stage:

Yishai Lapidot – MC and vocals

Arie and Gil Gat – vocals and guitars

Dudi Setter – guitars

Yaniv Rosenfeld – drums

Aviel Eliav – wind instruments
