The singer Yishai Rivo published a message on his Instagram account today (Tuesday) following the calls for a protest against his show near Harvard University, telling his supporters that he intends to hold the show anyway.



"Good morning friends, we are here in the United States. We woke up not long ago to a lot of messages we received regarding the show that, with God's help, will take place this evening in Boston at Harvard University for the dear Jewish students, and you must have heard about all kinds of rumors that are caused by some and others who want to prevent us from fulfilling this basic need to come and give strength to the students To our brothers and sisters, but here we are standing firm and we intend to come with all our strength, to get stronger together, to be happy together. And that's it, in addition I want to thank you for your great support and all the messages and love and cheering," Rivo said, "Let's hope that everything will turn out for the best. With Israel lives, I love you"



The affair began when the employees of the Sinclair Music Hall near the prestigious Harvard University announced the boycott of a Rivo show that was expected to be held there tonight (between Tuesday and Wednesday).

Thus, according to publications on social networks.



Rivo is scheduled to perform two shows in the hall, a well-known and well-known concert venue in the area, as part of a private event organized by the local Chabad house for Israeli Jews on the university's campus, with the aim of "encouraging their spirits" and honoring those who "have been working tirelessly in recent months to support the State of Israel and the Jewish people Rivo, the highlight of the evening, is holding two performances tonight, one after the other. For one of them, as of now, all the tickets have been sold out.



However, the hall's staff announced yesterday the boycott of the show, which led, according to the publications, to the hiring of an outside team to enable the show to take place As a result of this and the fact that the performance will probably take place anyway, there were calls on social media to gather outside the hall and demonstrate against the event. In addition, posts about other performances in the hall were filled with hateful comments against him and Israel. Among other things, it was written, for example, "You are hosting a fundraising evening for a country which killed thirty thousand people in the last months", "Don't raise donations for genocide" and the like.

The organizers of the show described this as the action of "Jew-hating and anti-Israeli voices".



"Yeshi [Rivo] is a man who embodies love and peace," the Chabad Harvard Instagram page reads, "This evening was created to lift the spirits of the Israeli and Jewish students who suffer from anti-Semitism on college campuses. Love, peace and music will prevail. Although there are no proceeds yet From this evening until now, if there are any, they will undoubtedly go to the recovery and rebuilding of Israel, which is recovering and fighting the enemy who seeks its destruction."
