Nine kids from Campanella Children's Choir's Treble Choir took part in a charity concert that raised money for a children's summer camp in Sderot, Israel.
Located near the Gaza strip, the city of Sderot faces a number of economic challenges, and it has been a frequent target of rocket attacks. Since 2000, Boston's Russian-Jewish community has been raising money for the Boston-Sderot Project - a ten-day program that would take kids out of the city for 10 days and give them a chance to relax and have fun.
To help fund the program, the Russian-Jewish community has been holding annual concerts for a number of years. This year, Chicago area's Russian-Jewish community has worked together to organize a concert of its own.
The Children Of Chicago to Children Of Sderot took place on April 6, at Northbrook Community Synagogue of Northbrook, Illinois. The concert was so well-attended that the synagogue parking was filled and guests had to park along the nearby streets.
The Treble Choir kids are grateful for the opportunity to take part in this event, and they were happy to lend their voices to such a worthwhile cause.
