David Ben Reuven – Singersongwriter

London-born Ben Reuven came on Aliya in 1966 soon after graduating from Cambridge University with a degree in Modern languages. He settled in Jerusalem and was the pioneer of simplified English, French and Arabic teaching newspapers for the Israeli school system. Over the years he also developed into a prolific singer-songwriter with one-man musical shows about Jerusalem, Herzl and Zionism and the heroes of the Bible. For many years he has been writing and performing songs about Raoul Wallenberg and the rescuers of the Holocaust as a member of the Jerusalem Working group for commemorating the major Jewish and non-Jewish rescuers of the Holocaust. His unique songs have been widely acclaimed and are also available on CD.
