The kids pictured here are all part of the Heftzibah Community Center in Netanya. This past Monday they were visited by our friends from Lev Leytzan, a group of medical clowns headed by Dr. Neal Goldberg. We have supported this talented group’s work for many years and this Hanukkah were thrilled to be able to connect them with The Forgotten People Fund, another Good People Fund grantee, so that the clown troupe could bring some cheer and a lot of Hanukkah presents to Israeli kids who might otherwise not celebrate. The Ethiopian kids who visit this community center come from the poorest neighborhood in Netanya and from the looks of the pictures it seems as if the game of Simple Simon (in addition to a balloon animal workshop and more) provided laughs and fun for everyone (along with some delicious sufganiyot).
