Yehoram Gaon to Perform in Sebastia on Sunday


Singer-actor Yehoram Gaon is scheduled to headline a giant sunset performance in the ancient amphitheater of the national park in Sebastia, the ancient capital of Samaria (Shomron). The event is approved and will be secured by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), and there will be transportation.

The show is part of  a series of events undertaken by the Samaria Regional Council to bring the area back into the awareness of Israelis, who have been reluctant to come because of the refusal of the IDF's Civil Administration for Judea and Samaria's refusal to guard the park 24 hours a day, which has also resulted in an increase in antiquities theft by local Arabs.
