Teddy Kollek with Singalong

A lecture, a panel discussion and a singalong -- this is a combination I've seen only at beit Avi Chai where this month's was on Teddy Kollek We started with songs about Jerusalem, followed by a short film on his life. The panel inluded a current deputy mayor and the director of the Jerusalem Foundation who had a chip on her shoulder because she had not herself thought of marking the tenth anniversary of his death. As she told the moderator in her opening statement, "We at the Foundation should have organized an event, thought since we didn't I suppose it's good that you did, though you should have invited more people to speak and included different material."
