Season Kickoff: Events at the Khan of the White Donkey
The Khan of the White Donkey is opening the 2010 summer season in May with a series of musical, cultural and spiritual happenings. Thursday evenings we will host outstanding world music artists, including the best virtuoso performers in the country.
Tuesday evenings they will be offering a variety of cultural events: quality films, lectures, and meetings with unique personalities.
Wednesday evenings will be dedicated to women’s gatherings, including musical performances, Rosh Chodesh parties, evenings of song and dance, and more.
Thursdays during the day the Khan is open for a weekly Community Holistic Health Clinic, with low cost acupuncture (with Marc Ben Shabbat) and other holistic treatments. Organic refreshment bar.
The first Friday of each month they will be running a community market at the Ma’ayan HaRadum (details in separate flyer). The following Saturday night we are hosting a singing circle with Efrat Cohen.
In addition to these performances, the Khan of the White Donkey offers classes, workshops, and a variety of courses in ecology, holistic health, music, and Judaism. They welcome residents of Tzfat and the Galilee who love and appreciate high quality music and cultural events, and are looking for a place to meet in the evenings, enjoy themselves, and enrich their spirits in an ecologically conscious manner. The Khan of the White Donkey also hosts private events, celebrations, conferences, and workshops for up to 100 people.
