Leftist Groups to Protest City of David Concert


Far left groups plan to protest a concert Thursday in the City of David, saying that the performance and the venue represented an “illegal invasion of Israeli culture in the Silwan area.” The concert, with Shlomo Bar, is one of a series that has been held over the summer in the City of David, sponsored by the Jerusalem municipality, the Culture and Sports Ministry, the World Zionist Organization, the Pakrs and Nature Authority, and others.

This is the fourth concert in the series at the site. Leftist groups have urged Bar, as well as other performers who appeared in earlier shows, to boycott the performances, but their requests were ignored.
