Ahead of Israel's 70th Independence Day, some 600 children from Samaria gathered in the Kanne Park near the community of Nofim in northwestern Samaria, and together performed the song "Tefilah" (“Prayer”) by the late Israeli singer Ofra Haza. The event was produced with the assistance of the Yakir secretariat.

Head of the Samaria Regional Council, Yossi Dagan, said that the children came from 20 kindergartens in Samaria, religious and secular. "The children are our future. Nothing is sweeter than to hear and see children singing together amid the beautiful landscapes of Samaria. Specifically due to the crises which Samaria has experienced in recent months, we chose a song of prayer and hope.”
