There was a little pre-Hanukah ceremony this morning at Tel Aviv’s Heichal Hatarbut where staff of the Israeli Philharmonic, together with the soloist Martha Argerich, watched the lighting of the first Hanukah candle.
Music director Lahav Shani led the singing of Maoz Tsur from an electronic keyboard.
Tonight’s concert will begin with another kindling and a full audience-participation sing-in of the Hanukah hymn of faith and defiance.
