Every cloud has its silver lining.
Corona global lockdowns have forced everyone indoors and its impact has been felt by humankind, young and old.
People with special needs have taken a particularly hard hit.
If before Corona, they struggled to maintain a daily routine to get through their day, at present, their struggle for social survival is tenfold.
Friendship Circle of Jerusalem (an affiliate of a worldwide organization catering to youth with special needs offering a range of ongoing social opportunities), has had its fair share of challenges as well.
One of FC Jerusalem’s highlights is the annual Hoshana Rabba concert at the Jerusalem Theater, saluting individuals with special needs.
Unwilling to disappoint its participants, FC Jerusalem has reinvented its modus operandi for the 2020 musical.
This year, famed singers Ohad Moskowitz and Yonatan Raz’el will be performing at the ‘Rockin’ Friendship 3’ event which will be Broadcast Live from Migdal David and can be viewed from the comforts of your own home .
Special appearances will be made by “Israel School of Music” Stars Chaim Zippel and Itay Turgeman.
Zippel has been a dedicated volunteer at FC Jerusalem for the past 3 years ( see past article – Miracle at the Baseball Game).
Last year, Rockin’ Friendship #2 starred 8th Day singers Bentzi and Shmuli Marcus.
