“Beyond the Voice” project began in 2015 with collaboration between Uri Shahar, a musician and entrepreneur, and “Keren Shalem” foundation of the local government center. The project works for the benefits of people with developmental disabilities. In 2019 joined "HaPais Council for the Culture and Arts" to support the project. Today there are three choirs - in Kfar Saba, Acre and Ashdod.
The leading social idea of these activities are the “equal combination” of singers from all backgrounds alike joining together for professional development and natural friendships.
The choirs are active year-round and contributes to the developing knowledge and practical ideas for leisure integration.
The vision of “Beyond the Voice” is to be an example of innovative and emerging thinking in the fields of integration of all people and to offer additional models for implementation.
It is our hope that we will succeed together, all parts together, singers and social and education alike, contributing in doing and leading a reality that generates social change to remove barriers and prejudices and to best integrate people with disabilities into the community.
