Saturday morning Soup and Concert at the Khan
Deep in the heartland of Israel,
in the area known as the Elah Valley, close to open fields and the JNF's Britain
Forest, there is an old
Turkish building which was once a Khan or way-station for travellers.
building houses a musical family. The mother, Kochava Taragan, an accomplished flautist, arranges
chamber concerts which are held on the terrace or in the large living room
every Saturday at noon. Before the concert everyone is treated to a bowl of nourishing
soup with home-made croutons. The chamber ensembles, often including Kochava
herself, play a selection of pieces for an hour or two, often interspersed by
some words of explanation. Sometimes the birds outside add their own
contribution to the music. Afterwards most of the audience repairs to one of
the local restaurants for lunch, though if you have not booked a table in
advance you might find yourself obliged to go home. Great restaurants nearby include Pa'amon (meat) and Tavlin (Dairy). Both are located on Route 38, near Beit Shemesh.
Performances are held almost every Saturday at 12:30 p.m., and soup begins at 12 p.m. The next performance is on March 27th.
