My relationship to Ronen Foundation
My journey with The Ronen Foundation began when i was 17, and still a bassoonist. I performed in one of Yaffa’s beautiful concerts at the Museum of art in Tel Aviv, a memory I treasure as it was also the first time I performed and was treated as a professional.
Since then I have made many changes, first and foremost of course is that now i’m an opera singer and no longer the same timid bassoonist. Yaffa has always been there every step of the way, giving advice, simply listening to hardships when necessary, supporting me and creating wonderful opportunities. When i came to her in the first year of my military service and suggested that we hold a concert in the hamptons, she took the idea and created an amazing annual concert that ran for three years, only to be stopped (for the time being) by the coronavirus.
The amazing thing about the Ronen Foundation, as opposed to other foundations, is the personal and warm environment it creates. To belong to the Ronen Foundation is truly to be part of a new, ever growing family.
