Sometimes life throws curves at us and we land face down, not knowing how we can ever continue. It’s good to know we have souls that care enough to help us back up so we can dance the dance of life once again. House of Shanti has always given youth a new step, a new perspective and a new dance for life. And now we invite you to join us in a dance of celebration!

Dance for Life – a unique and extraordinary music festival will be held at the Desert Shanti House Youth Village. In the desert, one is free to reconnect with their soul, to dance, to breathe, to be…

For the past 33 years, the Shanti House Association has dedicated itself to at-risk youth, ages 14-21. The Association operates two homes: The Shanti House in Tel Aviv, and the Desert Shanti Youth Village in the Negev Desert, inaugurated in 2009. Since its establishment, 48,000 youth have passed through the House’s open doors. Today, 88% of them have emerged triumphant – completing education, securing jobs and contributing back to society.

80% of the Shanti House Association’s income comes from private donations (while the other 20% is government funded). We are always looking for new, innovative ways to generate income without relying merely on the generosity of donations. We too wish to give back. This event will become an annual tradition, serving as a regular source of income for the Shanti House, as well as generating public awareness to the Association’s activities and values.

Today, we realize yet another dream, opening the Village gates to a spiritual festival like no other and inviting people to enjoy, interact and get to know the wonders of the desert’s nature, while benefiting from the opportunity to give to our youth and ensure that our Village survives and thrives.

We are honored to invite you to take part in the event for the benefit of our youth and our souls.
