Tsippy Goldstein Just got back from an awesome afternoon at Shalva National Children’s Center, we started out at the park which is great and then went on to a soap workshop which i organised as an activity for our shul that was amazing! One of the The Shalva Band להקת שלוה members was our teacher and he was so funny and we all loved him. We left there with awesome looking and smelling bars of soap that we made 🙂 and of course after that had a yummy dinner at the קפה שלוה Cafe Shalva!! A great time was had by all! and best part is that by doing this we donated to this very special place!!
