Michael Dabroski, a violinist who has recently performed a series of benefit concerts for Gaza in New England, has worked for some time with Al Kamandjati, a Palestinian organization in Ramallah that supports the education and schooling of Palestinian children by making music more accessible to them, especially those living in refugee camps and villages throughout Palestine and Lebanon. One of the people associated with Al Kamandjati (which means "The Violinists") is a young man named Shehade Shelaldeh, who has studied violin making. He is currently working on creating a violin which Michael will bring to the U.S. in March and then play in a series of concerts in the summer and fall.     The Palestinian Violin   Suggested: $20, $10 Seniors/Students
