“The mobilization of all those dozens of actors and singers, painters and artists – is exciting. It’s also a great opportunity to use language that many do not know, and to say to each other and to the whole world – I love you. I sincerely hope that this project will touch the hearts of many people in Israel so that together we can continue to accompany our trainees,” Danit Debra, CEO of the Ma’agalei Shema Association.
