CAARI Celebrates 25!

Our special celebration was held at the lovely Beit Shalom House – once the private residence of Mr. Shalom Horowitz, an affluent attorney who built this house in the 1930’s. CAARI began the evening with a tour of this elegant house and it’s impressive art collection of Israel’s finest artists from the 1930’s and 1940’s. Dinner was “elegantly prepared” by Itzak Feingold, caretaker of the house. The food was a real treat after so many days of hotel dinners. Shuli Natan, the famous Israeli singer best known for singing “Jerusalem of Gold” in 1967, entertained CAARI. We all enjoyed her lovely voice and stories about the songs she sang giving us a history of Israel in songs – with a few in Yiddish! “It was a night to remember and a wonderful way to conclude CAARI 2008 – good food, good friends and wonderful music in our beloved Land of Israel. Who could ask for more!” Happy 25 CAARI and a salute to Israel at 60! Shalom to all!
