To: Noam Bedein
Director of the Sderot Media Center
I wish to thank you for inviting me to see the performance of Children of Qassam Avenue that took place on Monday, November 26th, 2009 in Jerusalem. The play was very moving and the young Sderot actresses performed very convincingly the difficult reality they have been forced to live these past 8 years.
The play carries a strong and important message and can be utilized as a central tool in the struggle against those who would revoke the right of the citizens of Israel to exist and defend themselves.
It is important to translate the play into English so as to impress upon those living outside of Israel.
Congratulations on the success of the play, which is yet one more stage in the important work that you and your staff do for the people of Sderot and the State of Israel.
