The People of Novi Sad Supported the Israeli-serbian Pianist Kidnapped by Hamas

Citizens of Novi Sad today attended the opening of the three-day event “Alon’s Yellow Piano” in the BIG shopping center, in support of the young Israeli-Serbian pianist Alon Ohel, who was kidnapped by Hamas terrorists at the Nova music festival in Israel on October 7, 2023.

The assembled citizens were greeted by the ambassador of Israel, H. E. Yahel Vilan and expressed his gratitude on behalf of the State of Israel, as well as the family of Alon Ohel and all the innocent civilians still imprisoned in the Gaza tunnels.

“I am deeply moved that we are here today to tell Alon and all the hostages in Gaza that they are not alone. Let’s use the melody of the piano to draw attention to the suffering of 134 innocent civilians and their families and call for their immediate and unconditional release,” said Ambassador Vilan.

“Today, we join the initiative of Alon’s family, who designed this musical installation and placed the piano in a public space in numerous cities around the world. I would like to emphasize that Novi Sad has a special symbolism since the Ohel family originates from this wonderful city,” added the Israeli ambassador.

Alon’s mother Idit Ohel sent an emotional video message in which she expressed her hope that the music of the yellow piano will reach Alon and all the abductees, comfort them and give them the strength to endure.

Students of the Academy of Arts in Novi Sad, students of the “Isidor Bajić” Music School, members of the Jewish Municipality of Novi Sad, as well as numerous gathered citizens played on “Alon’s Yellow Piano”.

“Alon’s yellow piano” will be available for mall visitors to play on Friday, February 23 until 9 p.m., as well as on Saturday, February 24 and Sunday, February 25, from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., in front of the H&M store.
