Founded on the premise that music and creativity can unite people from diverse backgrounds and beliefs, Koolulam has a mission: to spread joy and unity through song. Termed a ‘musical social initiative’, the Israeli enterprise brings thousands of people together to create a musical sensation through the shared experience of singing with both strangers and friends.
In Recognition of the 70-year bond between Israel and Toronto, the President of Israel is coming too
One of Koolulam’s biggest fans is Israeli President Reuven Rivlin, who is coming to Toronto to sing with us when Koolulam makes it first Canadian appearance in April. President Rivlin joined over 12,000 Israelis in singing Naomi Shemer’s classic Hebrew song “Al Kol Eleh” in Tel Aviv last April, in celebration of Israel’s 70th Independence Day.
Check out the video below and see what you have to look forward to:
The Toronto experience will be awesome
This April, the entire Toronto Jewish community gets to be part of this unique musical experience when Koolulam leads us in the singing of Matisyahu’s hit “One Day.” * It’s the same song Koolulam orchestrated for 3,000 Christians, Jews and Muslims, who sang this beautiful anthem of hope and peace together in Haifa in February 2018.
It’s the haunting prayer for harmony and understanding sung at the vigil for the victims of the Tree of Life Synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh in October 2018.
Koolulam will be filming this event for use on social media, in newsletters and on websites. Everyone in attendance
may end up in this video (take a look at the crowd shots in the videos linked
below), so be sure to smile while singing!
Only people who are comfortable with being filmed and (possibly) appearing in this video should register for this
