There is Nothing Like Our Dames

On Monday night, I had the pleasure and fun of attending the Light Opera Group of the Negev production of Roger's and Hammerstein's South Pacific. Fabulous. Amazing. Really terrific!!!!
The music, the direction, the leads, the sets, the costumes. A superb production!
When the servicemen launched into the song, "There is nothing like a dame,", I really felt like they were singing to me.
For the fourth year in a row, I am producing, DAMES of the DANCE. Dames 4 - The Promised Land tells the story of the Land of Israel from Abraham until present day.
We've got 100 women rehearsing all over Efrat and Gush Etzion just about every night of the week. Some are rehearsing during the day too (like me). It's a lot of work, but we volunteer to do it, because the money from DAMES goes to kimcha d'pischa (that's money for Passover food). Passover is a very expensive holiday, and especially those who are needy have a real difficult time paying those bills. DAMES helps out in that department!
Over the past three years, we've donated 120,000 to kimcha d'pischa. I hope this year will be even better!!
Yes, it's true. There is nothing like our dames. To view our movie tribute to our DAMES of the DANCE, click here. And if you live in Israel, please join us.
