Here at home, Aelita is gracing with her presence charitable concerts, fundraising Galas bringing her unique talent, charm and elegance to raise money for good causes. In her career, Aelita has raised over seven million dollars for the State of Israel. Her award winning production Jerusalem Revisited in Song & Dance won her rave reviews from the critics:
"…you will be easily fooled that Barbra Streisand is on stage when a star performer, Aelita, belts out "Papa Can You Hear Me" from a movie "Yentl".
She remains true to her roots in her new production Songs from the Heart, taking us on a journey from the turn of the century, incorporating a fascinating family story spanning three continents through her life experiences from tender age of three to the present day. The preservation of Yiddish music is a lifelong quest for Aelita who is "a consummate performer", "chanteuse extraordinaire" and "a masterful artist".
