A rocking concert gives soldiers Peace of Mind

Idan Amedi returned to Toronto to rock out a multi-generational crowd at the second annual benefit concert for Peace of Mind (POM), a program at the Israel Centre for the Treatment of Psychotrauma.

The May 28 performance at Beth Tzedec Congregation – which also included Roni Daloomi, the 2009 winner of Kochav Nolad, an American Idol-type reality-TV competition – raised funds to support therapy for recently discharged Israeli soldiers. The program gives them the necessary tools and skills to transition back to civilian life.

Daloomi had the shul’s main sanctuary energized for Amedi, the evening’s featured act, who also performed in POM’s first benefit in Toronto last year, and each artist called the soldiers in the audience on stage for fitting tributes with their favourite song selections.
