Christmas party for Jerusalem’s Orphans

Sunday December 20th at 2pm

For over 60 years, every Christmas we bring 600 of Jerusalem’s neediest youngsters for a day of fun and entertainment in our beautiful auditorium  also receiving  gift packages to take home and continue to enjoy, making it a holiday season highlight for these youngsters, year after year.  In their difficult, day to day lives, they don’t often have the chance to laugh and they certainly do not have the opportunity to attend a live performance in one of Jerusalem’s oldest and grandest concert halls.  The new toys that they receive may be the only ones they receive all year.  For this one day, they get to feel like the city’s elite,  as they are welcomed into the beautiful and ornate YMCA auditorium.

A few tickets will be available, price: NIS 50. All proceeds will go to cover the cost of the event.

Tickets can be purchased at the YMCA membership desk

and by phone on 02-5692684

Parking – NIS 15. Payment at entrance to carpark
