Rihanna rocks Tel Aviv!

Amazing! Since when does the promoter of an American pop star make tikkun olam the price of admission to a concert?

Check out this dispatch from the Israelity Blog, one of my favorite sites to check out Israeli culture beyond the Mideast conflict.

Rihanna’s Tel Aviv concert tickets could not be bought with shekels.  Instead, her fans had to commit four hours of volunteer work in some of the country’s underprivileged neighborhoods. The benefit was the brainchild of Rockcorps, which has inspired more than 60,000 volunteers in the United States, Europe and Israel.

Let’s hope that the tzedakah lesson rubbed off and that some of these fans will continue to do charity work even when they don’t get to see a free concert!
