Miami Beach Festival Holds Concert For Building Collapse Victims

The event, titled "Console the Soul: An Interfaith Musical Gathering," included music, speeches, prayers, and the collection of donations for those affected by the building's violent collapse due to serious structural faults

On Thursday, the Miami Beach Music Festival Orchestra performed a concert at the Temple Emanu-El Cultural Arts Center for the families of those killed in the Surfside building collapse.

At least 95 people have been confirmed dead since the June 24 collapse, and around 20 more remain unaccounted for.

Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava attended the recent concert and said on stage that "in times of darkness, when the path may seem very difficult to find, we all know that it is a little light, the candle and the light in all of us that helps us to move forward when we are here for each other."

Other speakers that evening included local rabbis and reverends from Jewish and Christian faiths.

Those who would like to donate to the Surfside victims can contribute, among many other organizations, to Support Surfside, the Surfside Building Collapse Victim Fund, local community center The Shul, the Greater Miami Jewish Foundation, or the Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Miami.

You can also view the full event recording on the Center's website, tesobe.org.
