On 31 August 2014, a concert of Jewish soul music was held at Yad Vashem's Valley of the Communities. "Mashiv Haruach" From Safed to Jerusalem - A Concert of Jewish Soul Music - was held in the presence of hundreds of Holocaust survivors, next generations and friends of Yad Vashem from Israel and abroad. The towering walls of the Valley, etched with the names of Jewish communities destroyed during the Holocaust, made a perfect and imposing setting - the music soaring out across the Jerusalem hills. The music was a living memorial to the Jewish world destroyed during the Shoah, and the celebration of Jewish life that continues.
