My relationship to Ronen Foundation
My relationship with Yaffa Israeli and the Ronen Foundation began when I was a member of the program for outstanding singers at the Mishkenot Sha'ananim Music Center. The program director, Dr. Zvi Zemel, told me about Yaffa's support for the program and the foundation's ability to support singers in person.
The Ronen Foundation supported me financially at a very important and significant juncture in my professional life- when I began my studies at the Academy of Music and Dance in Jerusalem.
In addition to the financial support of the foundation, the presence of Yaffa, who is always attentive, interested and helpful as much as she can, is of first-class importance.
I wish that every young artist at the beginning of his journey, will have someone who recognizes and sees and supports him in the long run.
