This week, the world said goodbye to Harry Belafonte, an singer, actor, and activist who meant so much to so many through the years. The above photograph, taken in 1960, is a glimpse at Belafonte’s visit to the Holy Land that year. And the below video documents the talent of this friend of the Jewish people. May his memory be a blessing.
