A group of musicians rejected the idea of boycotting Israel at a Jerusalem Music Conference panel discussion. Artists "should come here and donate money to causes," stated Moshe Levi, who was born in Belize and studies at a yeshiva in Jerusalem. Levi gained fame as the hip-hop artist Shyne. The session was moderated by Kobi Farhi of the Israeli band Orphaned Land. Farhi sited singer Leonard Cohen as an example of someone who performed on Israel despite calls to boycott and then donated proceeds to charity.
