Top Israeli Vocalist David Broza is the Special Guest at Exclusive Reception
David was the guest of honor at the reception, at which the birthdays of Louanne Spielman, Stephen Selber and Ofer Yechezkel were celebrated and guests mingled and chatted with the well-known vocalist. Tali and Yoni, who participated in a mitzvah project for Ahava, sold bracelets they made to contribute proceeds to the village. Ariela and Shmuel Yankelewits, recently married with seven children, said, "Ahava is about love and commitment. At Ahava, kids have a chance to transform their lives and create a future. Without Ahava, these kids would not have much of a future. This philosophy of providing kids with a home, love, commitment and future has touched us both." David was happy to lend his support and he signed CDs and had his photo taken with guests.
