Jews know that Judaism will live forever, rockers believe that rock and roll will never die, and the Beit Shemesh Festival is for people whose souls demand both spiritual and musical healing.

The festival featured artists and bands including Piamenta, HaMakor and Shlomo Katz.

The annual festival also includes daily activities for the family, including nature hikes, bicycle trails, jeep rides, children's workshops, an arts and crafts fair, as well as exhibitions of Judaica, painting, and sculpture.
