For those of you not intimately familiar with the Israeli folk tunes scene, one of THE most popular bands which came on the scene in the 1960's and continues until today in a different line up is The Parverim.

The Parverim came to Bet El last night and the Be'er Sheva Philharmonic Symphony joined in for a spectacular performance.
