‘Behold How Good’ is a performance-based project relating to the artists’ political and cultural backgrounds and to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. A siren is played in Israel on Holocaust Memorial Day. The words are from Psalm 133 and can be translated as: Behold how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity.
