Photos of the A.H.A.V.A. Readathon Awards Ceremony in Ma’ale Adumim

Hi Everyone!

Today, February 27, the A.H.A.V.A. Readathon Awards Ceremony
took place at Eshkol Hapayis in Ma’ale Adumim.

I posted the photos at:
http://www.jr.co.il/ma/pic/2017/ma1190.htm

Congratulations to everyone that participated in the readathon.

Before the awards, Ofer Goren gave a great Purim pantomime show.
I was close to the stage and suddenly he motioned me to come up on stage.
He dressed me up as Mordechai and I followed his lead.
Several people took photos but I have not seen any yet. I wonder if anyone
filmed the Purim dancing scene at the end of the show. My first acting gig in
Israel could have been a viral video on Youtube :-]

Have a good week and an early Happy Purim!
Jacob

up on E1 (Mevaseret Adumim) and built a giant chanukiyah.
The chanukiyah was made of around 450 candles in falafel bags,
set down on the ground in the shape of a menora.

A big thank you! to Elyasaf-Shmuel Pomerantz​ for the photos below.
