Israeli President Reuven Rivlin
Koolulam is an Israeli phenomenon

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.

 

Please join us.
