American Friends of Sderot invites you to a special concert on Chol Hamoed Sukkot featuring world-renowned singing sensation Eitan Katz on Wednesday, October 19, at the Queens Theatre at 8 p.m., to benefit the community and Hesder Yeshiva of Sderot.

The city of Sderot, located in southern Israel and less than 1 mile from the Gaza border, has become one of the most significant national symbols of heroism.

The Hesder Yeshiva of Sderot, the largest Hesder Yeshiva in Israel, has a rocket-proof Beit Midrash and dormitories to secure the safety of the 500 students who study Torah there and who also serve in the IDF. A rocket-proof bomb shelter in the city’s park enables hundreds of children to play while living under the threat of missile bombardments and tunnels of terror from nearby Hamas in Gaza.

The Chanukah menorah, made from the Kassam rockets that fell in the city of Sderot, stands proudly on top of the Hesder Yeshiva and is a true testament to Sderot’s brave determination in the face of continuous terror. Being on the front lines, Sderot has revealed to the world a model of outstanding courage that sets the tone for the State of Israel.


Against all odds, the community of Sderot, with the help of the Hesder Yeshiva, is growing and thriving. The town is hustling and bustling. Real estate is developing and, anchored by the new state-of-the-art train station that connects Sderot with the rest of the country, young families are moving to experience life in this special town.

The concert will raise much-needed funds for scholarships, programs and projects that will help continue to build and secure Sderot.

Ticket prices are $18, $25, $36, $50, $75.
