Youth Choir

KADYA is a collaboration between the Arab-Jewish “Voices of Peace” girls’ choir from Jaffa and young singers from Weimar and the rest of Germany. Together, these 12 - 19 years old young singers from Israel and Germany will create a program of Hebrew, Arabic and new Yiddish children’s songs that will be the opening event of the 18th Yiddish Summer Weimar festival on July 20th 2018. The program will also be presented in Erfurt on July 22nd.

The KADYA Youth Choir 2018 will start on July 6th with the trip to Jaffa, on July 16th, the entire group is flying to Germany and on July 24th the group from Jaffa is flying back.

We are asking for a participation fee of EUR 150.- to help us cover the costs for travel, food, accomodation and programming.
