Nadav is only 8 but knows everything there is to know about football. Nadav’s favorite team is Maccabi Haifa, and he never misses a match – even if he can only watch it on TV from home or from the hospital. The Ezra Lemarpeh “World of Wishes” project made his wish come true – meeting the players from his favorite team.
The Ezra LeMarpeh Association, founded by Rabbi A. E. Firer, provides assistance to the sick and needy.
Nadav and his brother were given a visit to the team’s training pitch at Kfar Galim near Haifa, where they were made very welcome by all the players, the coach and professional staff. Group photos were taken, and Nadav was given a football signed by the players. He was also shown through the club’s state-of-the-art gym and the dining room. After his visit, Nadav was taken to the club’s shop in Haifa, where club management gave him a team uniform and plenty of merchandise. Nadav’s sports-filled day ended with a cheerful heart and lots of smiles.
