Star of Jewish music Avraham Fried gave a private performance for children with special needs in Crown Heights on Monday evening.
Violinist Yonasan Rothman performed, and singer Yossi Fraenkel sang accompanied by Pinny Ostreicher on the keyboard.
The performers interacted with the children, who had a wonderful time dancing and singing together.
“The simcha in the room was palpable,” said Mrs. Devorah Scheiner, organizer of the event. “It was a difficult event to pull off, but seeing the happiness it brought these special kids, it was all worth it,” she said.
Rabbi Yossi Jacobson gave a dvar Torah as well.
Scheiner also thanked Mrs. Zeldy Klein, the evening’s host, for her gracious hospitality.
