We have been blessed with so much kindness in the last few weeks, we just have to share.

The Carmel Bach Festival has provided us with ad space in their program book (the festival is in July) at a very special rate. Peter began the journey we are on in the 1970s when he was listening to St. Matthew’s Passion. Usually he brought his score to the festival; the year he forgot to pack the score was the year that INSPIRATION struck. Just so happens that the theme for the 2016 Bach Festival is “Inspiration”.

Walter A. Chacón, Walter See Designs, has begun working with us a graphic designer; Walter turned our first ad around in record time. Thank you to Zak Posner and Sid Tafler for their editing contributions.

Committee member Bill Southward (based in Victoria, BC) is in Jerusalem right now. So happens that another friend of the Oratorio, Friedemann Meussling (based in Stuttgart, Germany) is also in Jerusalem. So many friends, it is starting to feel like divine providence.

We are starting to see an uptick in donations to support the concert – but we still have a long way to go. All funds need to be in by the end of August if the performance is really going to happen. We have 142 days until the concert. Please tell all of your friends … and donate TODAY.
