In 2017, we decided to change the format of the benefit concert and connected it with Hanukkah celebration. Judging by the great interest of the attendees, we went in a good direction. We hosted 250 participants, including children, for which there was a children art prject prepared the Czech madrich team led by Ben Hess. The event also had the honor of welcoming His Excellency Mr. Daniel Meron, the ambassador of the State of Israel to the Czech Republic. During the concert, he lit two candles on the outdoor hanukkiah and recited the traditional Hanukkah blessings.
The Hanukkah Benefit took place on 13 December 2017 in Café Jedna. It featured Orange Band that played to the great joy of the present dacers among the attendees. The evening was moderated by the Ester Janečková.
During the cncert we managed to raise 41,056 Czech Crowns which were donated to the Hagibor Social Welfare Home.
Photographs of the benefit can be found in our photogallery.
