 About the Brothers Yares: 

 Ami and Gavri-Tov Yares are talented musicians, as well as brothers, that lived in Cherry Hill and both graduated from Cherry Hill East High School.

This Summer, musicians, social activists, and educators AMI YARES & GAVRI-TOV YARES will be performing their “multicultural sharing of sounds” (SING OUT! Folk Magazine) in the United States. 

Separated by an ocean, THE BROTHERS YARES reunite again to bring their love of life and heritage to communities all over the country.

THE BROTHERS YARES ( merge the influence of a pastoral New Jersey childhood with the intensity of life in Israel and the Middle East (where Ami currently lives).

Their music’s juxtaposition of past and present provide a soundtrack and springboard for a better present and future.

Over the past year, both the US Embassy in Tel Aviv and US Consulate General have sponsored performances by Ami via his program FocUS Music while he continues to work with Arab and Jewish youth via Heartbeat: the Palestinian and Israeli Youth Music Projects and various other non-profits dedicated to social change and youth empowerment through the arts.

Gavri-Tov is a music teacher working with youth around Washington, DC. He currently teaches at the Charles E. Smith Day School and lectures/performs music from the Jewish tradition and beyond.
