The event was billed as “Christians, Jews and Muslims sitting together for one extraordinary evening supporting the education of all children in the Middle East“. The proceeds from The reGeneration Concert for Possibility were to benefit reGeneration’s projects in the Middle East.

The special guest presenter was Ed O’Neill from the Golden Globe and Emmy Award Winning TV series, Modern Family. As is Regeneration’s mission, the concert aimed to make grassroots, interfaith and multicultural education that fosters cooperation between Jews and Arabs in Israel possible.

The list of world-renowned artists who performed at the concert included Riad Abdel-Gawad, Ali Amr, Ahmed El Asman, Rabbi Hagai Batzri, Cantor Rita Glassman, Chazan Danny Maseng, Hillel Tigay and Judeo and Yuval Ron Ensemble.
