A New York Night With Idan Raichel


Over the sound of clinking wine glasses and hushed conversation in Hebrew, Idan Raichel performed a solo show at City Winery in Tribeca this past Friday night.

A small group of about 30 formed outside the venue to protest Raichel’s performance, part of the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions movement against Israel, holding signs and heckling attendees. Though they were restrained by metal barricades they were a noisy bunch; it was possible to hear their chants and horn blowing towards the beginning of the concert and one could see them through the venue’s back window. They were mostly gone by the time Raichel finished performing.
