Arava Benefit Concert
On Sunday, June 29, at 4 p.m., Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul and Mary will perform a benefit concert for the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies at the Israel Congregation of Manchester, Vt. Rabbi Michael Cohen was a part of the founding faculty and staff of the Arava Institute in 1996, a premier environmental teaching and research program in the Middle East, preparing future Arab and Jewish leaders to cooperatively solve the region’s environmental challenges. Alumni from Burr Burton Academy and students from many Vermont colleges have studied at the Institute. A limited number of tickets are available at Northshire Bookstore.
