|hanuka lights with the Israel Diamond exchange|

On the first night of Chanuka, the Israel diamond exchange hosted us for a candle lighting in honor of the successful hair drive that ended that day. A top unit if the border police rappelled from the top of the Aviv building (the tallest in Israel), on a 250 meter braid from the hair donations we received from the hair drive.
The braid was tied through the night by border police volunteers, who have been with us for over 15 years of giving. Bank Mizrahi, which resides in the Aviv building, sent us a representative- the daughter of one of the workers who donated her hair.
TV and music personalities graced us with their presence: Alon de Loco, Julietta, Dvir Benedek, Danny Roup, Yishai Lapidot, Ivri Lider, Akiva & Anael, Tzippy shavit, Keren Peles, Shachar Peer, shani Cohen & Tom with Adelle. Chaim expressed his emotion at the cooperation that went into creating the event. "this hair drive and event show Am Yisrael at it kindest, unified in an effort for good".
