Kol Nashim, the women’s choir of the Colorado Hebrew Chorale presents “Woman to Woman 2022” its first in-person concert since the beginning of the pandemic in 2020. This annual concert, which benefits the Jerusalem Shelter for Battered Women, will be held to Tuesday, May 24, 2022, 7:00 pm MDT at the Hebrew Educational Alliance, 3600 S. Ivanhoe Street in Denver. The program will also be live-streamed.
The shelter, operated by Woman to Woman, an Israeli NGO (non-profit) established in 1982, serves abused women and their children. In the 40 years since its inception, it has been in the forefront of the struggle against family violence in Israel and has spearheaded professional excellence and social change. Under the auspices and supervision of the Israel Ministry of Social Affairs, it has aided hundreds of women who have suffered abuse at the hands of their partners. The Shelter provides physical haven and emotional security for women from all over the country regardless of religion, race, nationality, age, education or economic situation. They are referred to t the shelter by welfare authorities and social services, the police, hospitals, and emergency centers.
Woman to Woman also operates a children’s center, half-way housing and community integration and offers legal aid. Executive Director, Naomi Schneiderman, is the recipient of the Rayah Fund Prize for her work and achievements with Woman to Woman and the shelter. The pandemic had a severe impact on those suffering from domestic violence and the organizations that provide necessary service to them. We are grateful that all proceeds from this event will be matched by an anonymous donor.
The Woman to Woman 2022 concert will celebrate the strength of women and children through song. Kol Nashim will be joined by the Colorado Hebrew Chorale and will feature Eitan Kantor, the new music director of HEA. Through the creation of both religious and secular Jewish music, Eitan works to inspire social action rooted in Jewish values. He channels music through his fiddle, his singing voice and the collective singing voice of the community. Two new pieces by Kol Nashim’s pianist Nili Abrahamsson will be premiered. There will also be a US premier of a video presentation celebrating the Jerusalem Shelter’s 40th anniversary.
