“Voices – From Africa to Israel & Beyond” will be touring Australia (Perth, Melbourne, Sydney) in November this year.
The Voices 2017 Organising Committee is looking for volunteers to join the team.

“Voices” is a musical feast starring “Oshy” Tugendhaft with 24 singers and musicians on stage.
When this team visited Australia with “Celebration 60” a few years back, this is what the AJN said:

A stunning achievement and an outstanding tribute to Jewish culture and the State of Israel.
A mammoth undertaking by anyone’s standards, we can only hope that this talented …
production will not wait another 60 years before returning to our shores.

Oshy, the singers and the Organising Committee are all doing this in a voluntary capacity, for the benefit of the community. All profits from the show will be donated to local charities and Israel.

We are looking for volunteers in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth to assist with logistics and promotion, including managing our Facebook page. If you are interested in being involved and can help in any way, shape or form, please contact:

Sydney/Perth: Ian Charif 0414 492 010
Melbourne: Helen Brustman OAM 0419 340 269

Look forward to hearing from you!
