      Jewish bands made up of yeshiva students as well as established artists came together to perform at the Complete Unity Concert Saturday night at Heichel Shlomo in downtown Jerusalem. Income from ticket sales went to benefit two local charities - the Jaffa Institute and the Beit Shemesh Educational Center - that help poor and disadvantaged youth.

      The concert was organized by local educator Rabbi Eli Goldsmith, also known as "the midnight rabbi" by his students. In addition to raising money for local charities, the concert's aim was to bring together Jewish people from different parts of the world and different backgrounds, and to connect them through the medium of music. The artists included Aharit HaYamim Hai and Shtar
