August 26, 2021 - Happy International dog day.

"My precious Lady came into my life a few years ago when I met my dear husband. She was a dirty neglected puppy when she was first found on the streets, from there moved to a shelter, then to a home that had to give her away at some point due to personal reasons… Luckily, my husband was in the right place at the right time and decided he will take care of her and provide her a good, happy, and stable home for good! Since then, she has been nothing but a huge blessing to us both! A year after I met my husband, we decided to get Lady a friend, and then came Charlie…! and the love and joy we’ve received from Lady just doubled! Words cannot express our love and gratitude for these two little Patzos! They have completely changed our lives and expanded our hearts Now, here is a cool connection:

I decided to write my first children’s book a few years back (before I met my husband) and there was born “Welcome home Muffin”!

A book about compassion, love, and friendship. It took me some time to finish the execution part …but I finally did it! 

🥁🥁🥁I’m happy to announce that my first children's book is out and available on Amazon!  I hope my book will inspire you and your loved ones to adopt and to give a new chance in life to someone else! Remember, there’s always something good we can do for others and the reward is something that money cannot buy, and words cannot explain! Always chose to be the light."


Much love, Elinor ♥️

"Imagine" was written and composed by the legendary musician John Lennon in 1971 yet is still so relevant nowadays.

Let’s awake as many hearts as possible and do our best to create a better world by teaching and learning 

unity, peace, love, and kindness, and by celebrating life every day!




Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people living for today

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people living life in peace

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope some day you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people sharing all the world

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope some day you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Written & composed by: John Winston Lennon

The past few months were pretty amazing! 
The response to my last tour with the incredible Yuval Ron Ensemble was beyond imagination!

To be able to move what is standing still. To be able to wake what is sleeping deep.

While I was singing to you, something incredible happened!

You turned into an echo of the sounds we created and your beautiful souls and big hearts touched and opened mine!  

I would like to thank everyone who came out to our concerts.

Thank you for allowing us to take you for a ride in our neighborhood!

I love you all,

Thursday, August 20, 8:00 p.m.

Performing the concert program “My Heart Is in the East: Mystical Music and Dance of the Hebrew Tribes,” Israeli Angeleno Yuval Ron and an ensemble featuring Moroccan-Israeli vocalist Elinor Sitrish and sacred dance artist Mayaya take the stage with their intensely moving and adventurous pan–Middle Eastern music.

Formed in 1999, the Yuval Ron Ensemble includes Jewish and Christian artists who strive to create musical bridges between people of diverse faiths and ethnic backgrounds. As they pay homage to diverse Jewish cultures of Morocco, Yemen, Iraq, and Israel—from euphoric Kabbalistic Hebrew dances to fiery Sephardic-Andalusi songs—the ensemble creates a synthesis of styles that is both deeply traditional and boldly innovative.

The Hollywood Bowl celebrates its 48th year of presenting SummerSounds, one of the most popular children's festivals in Southern California!


"I'm so honored to be taking a part in this beautiful and so important series!

In times like this of enormous chaos around the world and endless battles over lands, cultures, and religions, it is very important to educate our younger (and older) generation and to plant seeds of love, peace, friendship, and equality.

As the guardians of this planet, we are obligated to do so!
And I cannot think of a better and more effective way to show someone a light than by speaking in the language of the world, the language of colors and sounds!

I believe that we all artists are messengers in a way. We have the power to kindly bring people closer or, on the other hand, to break them apart... and so we all should use our gifts wisely.

As humans, we all have a way to speak to others' hearts.

I truly feel blessed for the gifts I've been given and for being able to lead a way to a change through the sounds.

Find your way and set an example.
Do it with much kindness and love.
After all, we have only ONE home - Planet Earth, we are all ONE, and life is too short and beautiful to live on a battlefield.

Peace, Love & Harmony :)



Tickets to SummerSounds:

"The ensemble is AMAZING! your Music opened my heart" (Debbie Divine, The director of SummerSounds)



"Charming and most important educational event for young children" 

(Head of the Early Music Society of San Francisco)



"There is nothing more important than what we did today, as far as using the arts to advance an important message to the young generation of tomorrow."
