Shiri Maimon, the 2005 Israeli representative who achieved a respectable 4th place in the final of the Eurovision Song Contest with the song �Hasheket Shenish'ar� (The silence that remains) have been given the honour of being the special guest star at the 2010 Erev Galabal in the Belgian city of Antwerpen on Saturday 23rd of January 2010.

The galabal is set to be the society gathering for the Jewish community in Belgium but expected to welcome also many fans and Jewish people from the Netherlands, France, Germany, Switzerland and many more.

The idea of the Gala Ball is to give the unique opportunity for Jewish communities of different regions to meet, greet while enjoying the fantastic atmosphere of Israeli top artists performing on stage. Local promotion has been put in place in Belgium, Holland & Germany to make this gala ball the first in its kind. The 5 stars Radisson Park Lane, located in the heart of Antwerp has been chosen to host the event. Also the famous Israeli DJ Itay Lev promises to make the audience dance all night!

In preparation of the Belgian performance, Shiri Maimon is really looking forward to this new opportunity. For the occasion she sent a special messagetoher fans

Ticketing information can be found here . There will be opportunities to meet up with the Israeli Eurostar and arrangements have been made for guests to attend a VIP-lunch with the Israeli singer.

Very special thanks to Olivier Vanhoutte for the submission of the information.

Thanks to Johnny Logan and Hold me now I fell in love with the Eurovision Song Contest, a love that's been going strong ever since with undiminished passion. My first memories date back to 1977 and the lyrics of Rock bottom, Dschinghis Khan and A ba ni bi are still engraved in my brain.

I joined in 2006 as a junior editor after being invited by Barry Viniker, I soon became Senior Editor and during the 2007 contest in Helsinki I was appointed Head of Communications. Today I hold the post of Head of Human Resources and I am proud to be working with the best editorial team in the world.
