Motek Cultural Initiative (MOTEK) is a non-profit charitable organization established to showcase modern Israeli music to diverse audiences. MOTEK began with a vision and dream for change! By introducing talented Israeli artists to the mainstream, we are fostering a new generation’s appreciation for Israel across multicultural communities. This awareness not only educates and promotes unity, but also enables Jews and Israelis to get back in touch with their roots. MOTEK improves perceptions of Israel using music as a tool to transcend the barriers of language, promoting positive attitudes and unity. Our vision is a world that sees Israel in a positive light through the richness of its vibrant culture, which is why we let the music reveal a version of the country that is underrepresented.
To reveal a positive image of Israel while strengthening our next generation’s connection to Israel.
Through the power of music.
Through concerts, workshops, and other unique programming, we let the sounds of Israel inspire the world. MOTEK is unique in its approach to improving Israel’s online reputation by providing inspiring and encouraging content about Israel, using an extensive range of New Media Tools.
By supporting MOTEK, you will help us to make a difference in how Israel is perceived worldwide, and instill a deeper passion for, and commitment to, Israel among our future generations. Your contribution will ensure the success of our innovative programming by helping us cover the cost of equipment and supplies required to produce our musical events and educational programming. 100% of our operational surplus is reinvested into future operations.

Mayor ROB FORD
It’s important that people learn more about [Israeli] culture and other aspects of our reality. What Ravid [Dahan] is doing here is a blessing.
Ravid founded MCI upon the very strong belief that music and art should be shared by all. She is staunchly committed to bringing the best of Israeli culture into the mainstream with the hopes of changing perceptions, and her passion for the cause is limitless. That she has been able to achieve so much in such a short time is a testament to her ability and dedication. Long live the Initiative.
It was a wonderful evening. I had to stand in the aisles and dance.
Just wanted to thank you again for an amazing concert and insane after party!
This was one great evening! Thank you for letting us be a part of it!
MOTEK would not be possible without the support of the community. Our heartfelt gratitude goes to the following organizations. Their backing has ensured our continued growth and success, and has allowed us to promote Israel and its vibrant culture. Their steadfast commitment to our beloved community is more than evident, with their efforts to unite our local Jewish and Israeli communities being most commendable. While MOTEK’s focus on contemporary Israeli music will be at its heart, it’s people like you that make our organization’s heart beat! Thank you for helping us let the sounds of Israel inspire the world!
