Violinist Yehud Menuhin has offered to contribute to the Jerusalem Foundation half of his earnings from a 60th birthday concert he will perform at Carnegie Hall in New York. A spokesman for the Jerusalem municipality said that the offer was made to Mayor Teddy Kollek following contacts Menuhin had with the Mayor and with Ehud Avriel, Israel’s Consul General in Chicago. Menuhin was one of the few internationally famous artists who refrained from denouncing the 1974 UNESCO resolution condemning Israel for its archaeological digs in Jerusalem.
