Shwekey Raises The Roof For Tikva

A MUSIC CONCERT to promote the work of TIKVA ODESSA CHILDREN’S HOME took place with close to 2000 in the audience there to support the Ukrainian Jewish rescue organisation.

Yaakov Shwekey, an internationally renowned Chassidic pop star, filled the hall of East End’s Troxy theatre for an evening of popular music, which included Lipa, an up and coming Chassidic pop star headlining the concert. The enthusiastic audience got up to dance in the aisles and showed their support of Tikva Odessa Children’s Home by responding generously to a text message campaign following a video appeal about the organisation.

Karen Bodenstein, Tikva UK’s newly appointed Executive Director said, “It was great to see the community coming together to support Tikva, giving hope to children, some of whom might never live to see another day. This concert has raised our profile enormously and we hope to continue growing in the UK.”
