Uri Shani's Organ workshop

in Yuvalim

founded by Gideon Shamir

You can visit the only workshop for pipe-organs in Israel, in Yuvalim, Galilee. The visit is a unique experience in a wonderful world of music, history, and craft. The workshop is also a visitor center, and we welcome the public for different events. The pipe-organ was born here, in the Middle-East, 2300 years ago, and a visit at our place is interesting not only for musicians, and not only for Christians.
