Ariel Youth Movement Put on Purim Spiel for Hospitalized Kids


Members of the Ariel Youth Movement's Rehovot branch today (Monday) arrived at Kaplan Hospital in order to pass out goodies, put on a performance, and to bring the spirit of Purim joy to the children hospitalized there.

The youngsters brought Purim food gifts (mishloah manot), masks, sang songs and put on a capoeira (Brazilian dance/martial arts form) performance to the delight of their audience.

One of the sick children's parents was moved to saying, "It is so very uplifting to know that people are thinking and caring about you at moments like these.  It is what gives you the strength to go on."
