Terror in Tel Aviv, pop symphonies in Ra’anana

Somewhere in the middle of Brian Wilson’s performance of The Beach Boys’ 1966 groundbreaking album, Pet Sounds, on Wednesday night under a starry sky at the Ra’anana Amphitheater, two terrorists were shooting up the Sarona Market a few miles away in Tel Aviv.

You could some members of the middle-aged capacity crowd shift their cell phones from filming the 1960s legend singing the album’s enduring standards like “Wouldn’t It Be Nice” and “God Only Knows” to checking their messages or news updates. And then, as if their internal thought processes were on the surface, you could almost see them deliberating – whether to focus on the stark reality that is Israel today taking place outside the sloped, fenced-in grassy area or the majestic fantasy taking place within. Except for a few isolated cases, it looked like the latter won out in spades.
