Keshet Chaim, "Rainbow of Life", is an American-Israeli contemporary dance troupe, celebrating the spirit of Judaism and Israeli culture throughout the world. The group's repertoire is inspired by Jewish life in many lands and covers a vast span of history, from the time of Solomon and Sheba to the present.
Artistic Director, Eytan Avisar and his company transcend generations of Jewish thought and emotion through a mosaic of music, dance and color. The company began in l983 and is presently the major professional company of Israeli folk dancers in the United States. Keshet Chaim’s mission is to express the global spirit of Judaism and Israeli culture throughout the world, and to combat prejudice and anti-Semitism through entertainment and education. Influenced by world music, the multi-ethnic roots of the Jewish people and a constant drive for interpreting and exploring Jewish values through art, Keshet Chaim has become a pioneer in the development of Jewish dance.
