Gathering at the encampment – A show called “Between Sderot and Jerusalem” – Micha Biton – singing and storytelling – Micha Bitton, in an intimate show, sings his songs and tells about his childhood in his hometown of Sderot, his parents who emigrated from Morocco to a transit camp in the South, and the reasons why he was forced to move as a 10-year-old boy to a foster family in Jerusalem, to the home of writer Galila Ron Feder. He also speaks about him as the inspiration for the hero of her book “To Myself.” As a teenager he moved from Jerusalem to Kibbutz Netzer Sireni and then to Givat Brenner. He talks about these constant moves and hardships until he eventually built a home with a woman from Moshav Netiv HaAsara. Finally, Micha describes his experiences as a creative artist and a father of four living on the border with Gaza… about dealing with the complex security situation, beauty, optimism and the yearning for peace.
