shape this family.
 We are so proud of all you have accomplished. 
You inspire us every day with your passion, vision, and
faith in the Jewish people.
May you go from strength to strength!

Dear Saftah
Growing up with you as our grandmother has been amazing. We've gotten to see you bring together hundreds of teenagers like us from all over the world to make beautiful music and celebrate being Jewish. We've gotten to sit in mind-blowing concerts and hear new music (while watching Ness on stage, or, in Ness' case, actually singing!). We've learned about Israel, the importance of being proud of our Judaism, and how to celebrate holidays, family, and being creative.
We love you! Mazal tov!

Dear Vivian,
Thank you for HaZamir.
Thank you for having such an outstanding broad vision- 
one that educated us in choral music to the highest level, in Judaism, in Zionism and helped us develop into better human beings.
Thanks to you, all of us in HaZamir Beit She'an have the opportunity to become better musicians and to experience a most educational and
uplifting experience that changes our lives.
 We sincerely hope that you will continue to do what you do (and you do it so wonderfully) and bring the message of HaZamir to more and
more youths in Israel and around the world because
what you do changes the lives of these youths forever.
 We are immensely grateful for these gifts.
From all of us with love-
 Hadas, Herzel and all HaZamirnikim from Beit She'an
