A charity concert starring Vladimir Spivakov
and the local Philharmonic orchestra was held at Geihal ha-Tarbut
in Rishon Lezion.
The concert was sponsored by the Russian
Embassy and Mrs. Elena Tarasova, the Ambassador's wife, in
person; as well as Ms. Zlata Khazanova and the Michael Cherney
Fund, known for its assistance to war veterans, medical patients,
and the victims of the Delphinarium bombing. All the proceeds
will be directed to the special fund for musically gifted
children with low income.
